PUBLIC PROJECTS | König Galerie | 1.1.2014–31.12.2020

Our approach to the public projects, and the reconfiguration of a public space, focuses on the attempt to integrate art into everyday life, by embedding it into the area. The relationship between artwork, architecture, and the private and public space is our key concern. A structure of association between space, object and observer should be created.

Consequently, the artists’ public projects are mostly site-specific, referring to the urban development and architecture. They are influenced by the context of the area, its ambience and environment as well as its inhabitants. The open character of public spaces offers the opportunity to work in a very conceptual way. Without any institutional restrictions, the condition of nature, space, the public and the surroundings can be reflected then translated into an artistic idea. The works explore the situation between the viewer, the artwork and the environment, challenging the role of art in different environments and social contexts – in the museum as well as the public space. Interaction is a distinctive element of the artworks, thus the viewer plays a vital role. The installations offer the viewer the possibility of participation in the action of a piece, or of being confronted with the surprise of the unexpected.

The images above show a small selection of the public projects we realise with our artists.
