mural fragmental


mural fragmental – peoples archive
The mural by the nicaraguan artist Leonel Cerrato Jironon on the outer façade of the former movie theatre “Kino im Augarten” only still exists in parts after the demolition of the building. In October 2009, facing the demolition, we initiated the storage of the remaining fragments by interested patrons through the RHIZOM project “mural final”.

The private archival situations will be made public through the publication-performance „Audience room – action room“. (Angelika Thon, Mirko Maric/RHIZOM)

2. „Green grows...“
In the north of Augarten a wall fragment was buried after the demolition on October 20, 2009 as a piece of memorial and reference. The revelation will lead the gaze onto the “footprint in the park” (RHIZOM)

3. „Canon of stars“ Composition & Micro-concert (approx. 40 sec)

During the demolition of the mural, a live intervention of baritone saxophone vs. digger took place. As an “echo” the piece will be performed once more by voice and western concert flute. (Manfred Stern)
