COSMO Art & Science Foundation's Sculpture Garden focuses on the dialogue between art and nature. Perception of art shall be inseparable from experience of nature. Besides permanent exhibits (like 'Tree of Life' by Stefan Szczesny) there will be mainly changing exhibitions in cooperation with other galleries and exhibitions. The centrality of nature is primarily of aesthetic value: the installed art is not independent, it constitutes a constant interplay with the environment by which it is inspired.
The Sculpture Garden is composed of three different zones of experience:
The artist's complex can accommodate, for a certain period of time, the international artist working on site. For a diversified interaction, a dialogue with the public shall take place. The objective is not to exhibit art statically, but to give the public a deeper understanding in art.
The Sculpture Garden shall give visitors, tourists and especially residents the possibility to enjoy art, which is harmoniously fitted into the beautiful garden and to relax in the wonderful cultural landscape. Here it is allowed or rather a must to actively live the passion for nature, art and culinary delights.
