Dersauer Kunsttage 1999


During the Dersau Art Days, three house sculptures of the same size were built in the landscape around the Plöner See. Two made of wood placed in two places in the forest. Another sculpture made of glass was placed with the gable at an angle in the ground, the excavation together with the soil and plants was embedded in the inside of the gable.
For the period of this sculpture's existence, a kind of microclimatic niche with its own water balance was created within the sculpture, which allowed the plants to continue growing.
The glass house was destroyed by vandalism.
