The window, a membrane between inside and out, becomes sculpture: From May to November 2022, Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden will present a series of three consecutive exhibitions, designating for the first time ever the architecture of its exhibition hall as a point of artistic departure.

For the series, artists Daniel Buren, Tatsuo Miyajima, and Bettina Pousttchi will create new works for the glass facade of the exhibition hall in the lower park, to be installed for three months each.

Viewers approach the site from the higher topography of the park, along a gently descending footpath. The initial bird's-eye view of the space eventually gives way to a view from below when visitors arrive at the hall.

Each work will be directly applied to the large glass wall of the hall's main facade; visually and conceptually connecting the exterior, the park, with the interior. The window itself becomes the object. The play between exterior and interior — of the ever-changing light of each day and season, of the shadows cast on the floor and walls of the exhibition hall — creates a complex associative image. A conscious decision was made to leave the interior of the exhibition hall empty for each instalment in the series.

The artists represent three different generations and three uniquely individual artistic approaches, each internationally recognized for years. Now, for the first time, they are being brought together for this series of exhibitions at Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden.
