Avantgardening is what artist Evalie Wagner calls her interventions in and with nature. Oscillating between poetics and concept, she creates works that, as visual metaphors with numerous historical and aesthetic connotations, explore issues of society and our time. Ecology, coexistence, perception of nature are themes she approaches in an open, transformative process. With her polymorphous work, ranging from expansive installations in public spaces to paintings and design objects, she creates a dialogue between a place and its stories, art and the surrounding nature.
Biodiversity, ecosystems and nature-based strategies for the future – Artists deal with the natural space around the Alpine Garden Bad Aussee. At the interface of science and art, they explore the theme of biodiversity and the relationship of man to the alpine and pre-alpine landscape.
