stay hungry Kleinwalsertal, Austria
14–18 August 2019, 7–9 PM
On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of stay hungry project space, a special exhibition format was conceived to celebrate: 26 artworks and contributions by 27 former and some new stay hungry artists and participants will go on a trip to Kleinwalsertal in Austria.
The exhibition concept for 26 Relaxercises follows the idea of holiday, refreshment, enjoyment, meditation and taking a break from daily life. The interventions will take place in the public space of Kleinwalsertal at several locations — on a peak, in a meadow, on a mountain slope, next to a waterfall, in a cheese factory, on a sandy mountain stream beach, next to a tent, at the bus station, in the supermarket, in a chapel — together with cows, lamas or the local postman etc.
The approach is to take one small artwork or contribution by every artist/ participant on that journey and create a series of small outdoor exhibitions and interventions over the course of 5 days. Every artwork will be on view for only a few minutes to a few hours and there won't be a classical opening, exhibition period or audience, beside the local people who will join in accidentally or become part of some of the works.
In that sense stay hungry would like to enable a relaxing time for the submitted works and contributions in a natural as well as culturally interesting environment to bring them some relief from daily, artsy life and pave the way for unforeseen encounters with passers-by that can result in new points of view and generate exciting situations.
