Olafur Eliason realizes an art project on the Grawand ridge
The famous Icelandic artist and architect Olafur Eliasson (52) will erect an art installation on Grawand the ridge, not far from the Glacier Hotel Grawand. The initiative comes from the association Talking Waters Society, which is based on the Schnalstal Valley. The association succeeded in winning Olafur Eliasson for the project. It will open on Summer 2020 and can be visited and entered. The work deals with climate change and the history of the ice ages.
The groundbreaking ceremony took place on 23rd September 2019, the day of the equinox. We show the photos of the laying of the foundation stone of one of the highest works of art in the world and a first sketch by the world star Eliasson of his art project in Schnalstal Valley.
