KUNSTALM is initiated by Katrin Liesenfeld-Jordan and Dirk Liesenfeld, owners of the art-lodge Hotel, to support an artist in residency programme and to realise a sculpture park with a distinct reference to the local environment. In addition, for around 20 years now, a collection of time based art is growing constantly, which is partly presented in the entire hotel and was shown in different exhibitions.
At the moment, the Kunstalm is closed, it will be open again from May 2019
The Sculpture Park comprises of approximately 15.000 square meters of alpine meadows. Since we got the permission to show sculptures on our property in 2010 and 2017, every year we invite one or several artists to create and realise an out- or indoor installation. The sculptures and installations are intervening with location-specific materials, e.g. findings and rejected things. The sculptures are not only representing the collection outside, but also the projects enable young and emerging artists to realise projects in a public area. In the summer of 2017, curated by Philip Patkowitsch, we extended the concept: The direct dialogue with the environmental landscape and the focus on the location is the main objective. Meanwhile, nine new sculptures were located at the enlarged sculpture pastures with a newly integrated walking path.
Exhibitions: The attic of the art-lodge’s barn was formerly used as a gallery by means of an off-space and presented new positions in a mountain setting and provided new development opportunities for both young and established artists, with independency of art fairs and commercial galleries.
Liesenfeld/Jordan Collection comprises of a constantly growing number of contemporary art pieces such as paintings, photographs, sculptures and video. The focus is set on German and Austrian artists.
