installed in the trees on the grounds of the Hollabrunn State Hospital realized by the Department of Art and Culture of the State of Lower Austria / Art in Public Space and the Hollabrunn State Hospital.
A group of international visual artists, authors, architects and musicians invited by the artist Claudia Märzendorfer created an aeronautical sculpture garden – a Werkbund settlement in the treetops. The birdhouse objects are individual contributions to a collective sculptural installation. An artistic consideration, not a singular, fixed structure. The sculpture garden was first opened in June 2019.
In 2022, the project was expanded with further commissions for objects in the trees from newly invited artists from the team for the birds.
