Francesca Cho in Rags in the Wind II, Graz, Austria

Graz

The picturesque Austrian university city of Graz (above) hosts an unusual exhibition from mid-September. From 15 September to 13 October the Botanical Garden of the Karl-Franzens-University will be the setting for an international collaboration of installation art.

The Botanical Gardens themselves are worth a visit in their own right, with their spectacular new greenhouse:

From the official press release:

“Rags in the wind II” (Fetzen im Wind II) is an exhibition of international contemporary art with the character of transboundary cooperation, ethnic great variety and global communication.

Numerous national and international artists will show their installations and artworks to the theme “Magic” between the trees and in the greenhouses of the Botanical Garden.

Representing the UK will be Korean-born artist Francesca Cho. Her works for the exhibition take their inspiration from the geometry of the building, and the mystical and spiritual significance of the various geometric forms in Christianity and the philosophy of Pythagoras and Aristotle.
