For The Birds

For the Birds / Pour les oiseaux is an art project in public space with many contributors:

a social project that from June 11, 2019 will be display in the large tree population on the grounds of the socio-psychiatric hospital in Hollabrunn, which developed from the Sanatorium Gugging.

A group of international visual artists, writers, architects, and musicians who were invited by the artist Claudia Märzendorfer to participate, will create an aeronautic sculpture garden – an airborne Werkbundsiedlung. Their respective bird houses are individual contributions to a collective sculptural installation. An artistic reflection rather than a singular fixed structure.

To give visitors the chance to match names and contributions and to locate these, a map of the aeronautic sculpture garden will be available at the clinic to guide them around the premises.

The commissioners for this project are the Department for Art in Public Space of the Lower Austrian state government and the management of the Landesklinikum Hollabrunn.

A booklet accompanying this project will be published by the Art in Public Space department of Lower Austria.
Through July 2019, authors and contributions to this collective project will be presented here: www.forthebirds.at
