Vienna – Over the next few weeks, the STRABAG residential construction project “Über den Linden” will be made highly visible thanks to a light installation that can be seen from one end of town to the other.
Responsible for this illuminative work is the artist collective ANOTHER WORD FOR, consisting of Clemens Wolf and the media artists Clemens Gürtler and Christoph Schmid (lichterloh), who, in cooperation with STRABAG Real Estate, are creating an unusual lightshow that will dazzle spectators without becoming a nuisance for local residents.
The installation consists of specially programmed spotlights that will illuminate the building under construction with moving light spots after dark. Different light cones will result depending on the progress of construction. The light installation will be switched on for a few hours after dark.
With the light installation, titled Houdini, STRABAG is not only creating an interesting visual attraction but is also setting a widely visible sign that inner-city construction sites can be a venue for interesting art. For the opening of the light installation, art enthusiasts were invited to a 360° view over Vienna at night from the 230 m² penthouse of the building. The evening included an exhibition of additional exclusive and unique artworks by Clemens Wolf.
As the largest and most successful construction company in Austria, STRABAG has for many years worked in close cooperation with national and international artists. STRABAG Kunstforum not only owns one of the largest collections in the country but also awards a prestigious art prize, the STRABAG Artaward International. Houdini creator Clemens Wolf is one of the winners.
“There are plans to install the lights on other urban construction sites,” says Tanja Skorepa, director of STRABAG Kunstforum. “Houdini could then also become an artistic symbol for other STRABAG projects.”
