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.

The Sculpture Garden is composed of three different zones of experience:

  • The seascape, which, inter alia, is to be experienced via a small bridge,
  • die wood landscape, in which art exhibits can be discovered rather coincidentally,
  • und open field, in which sculptures integrate in existing planting.

Vision

Kindergartens and schools shall use the Garden to have children and young people understand art and nature. Young artists are supported as much as possible, giving them the possibility, via tenders and competitions, to get funding, possibilities of presentation and perception. During project days, hobby artists have the possibility to learn from artists in theory and practice. It is also possible to realize, in cooperation with the City of Winsen, Germany, projects which meet the artistic educational mission.

The landscape offers the possibility to set up the sculptures on different areas to create a unique experience of art. There will be places to take a rest and enjoy the scene.

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 (e.g. "Tree of Life" by Stefan Szczesny), above all, there are changing exhibitions in cooperation with other galleries and exhibitions. The centrality of nature is mainly of aesthetic value: the installed art is not independent; it constitutes a constant interplay with the environment by which it is inspired.

"Tree of Life" by Stefan Szczesny

The COSMO Art & Science Foundation will give itself to the contemporary art. Thereby the garden will not be used just for one art movement, but for many different sculptures from the present.

Grounded to the touristic area we count depending on season with approximately 100 visitors per day. The barrier- free ground is equipped with many parking areas.

A significant nuisance for the local environment is not to be expected, due to the relative number of visitors. The sculpture garden and the bistros increase the attractiveness of Laßrönne for locals and tourists likewise.

The exhibition will be financed by sponsors and by the revenues of the garden and the restaurants.

Even during the planning phase the public will is given the possibility to get informed by an information- point about the garden and it's beautiful sculptures.

Architecture

The buildings should be placed harmonically and transparent into the nature, and accept a subordinate role to art. Envisaged is a sustainable ecologic architecture in the mould of Fincubes by Werner Aisslinger. Furthermore we are planning a contest for the upcoming generation of architects.

Pavillon of Art - The Artcube

The Pavillon of Art will become the main building of COSMO Art & Science Foundation. In this building the visitors will find an exhibition space, a bistro, a small shop of the foundation and a library. A storage room will be provided as well.

The exhibition area will not only be used for exhibitions but also for panel discussions, music evenings and other cultural events. On top of this exhibition area a customer service is been planned. This space will be also used for an information-point, an art shop and a library.

Gastronomy

Art and good food belong together! For that there will be a bistro in the main building offering regional specialties and a small crafts- brewery with self-subsistence. The bistro will be open at weekends and with an outdoor area during summertime. Our visitors have the possibility to use provided picnic baskets and enjoying the garden in the nature.

Special exhibition

An additional exhibition building shall be built on a small grassland. Changing special Exhibitions to selected topics will be hosted here.

Pavillon of Foundation - The Administrationcube

The foundation Pavillon will be composed of several smaller edifices and will be the home of the main- office and administration. As the main centre of the foundation projects will be pushed by the scopes of Art and Science, meetings will be hold, Scientists and Artists from all over the world will be received. The administration centre includes offices, archives and meeting rooms. Social Environments will be provided, too. For a full time supervision and upkeeping of the complex a facility-management and security service will be hosted.

Atelier of Artists

The artist's complex can accommodate, for a certain period of time, the international artist working on site. The heart of the complex is the artist atelier, which needs to fit to the belongings and demands of international well known carvers. On one hand, the working area needs to be big enough to be able to host massive sculpture projects. On the other hand technical aspects need to be fulfilled, like a 6 m high roof or a big atelier door with traveling winch.

Very important is the living room directly connected to the atelier. 120 sqm are the minimum requirement for the artists who are working temporarily. The goal is to attract international well known artists, so it is important to have an incentive, furthermore enough living space for partners and/or children.

Involvement of the public

The COSMO Art & Science Foundation shall be a lively foundation. 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. To reach this goal, the foundation plans a holisitc. This embraces panel discussions, music events and other cultural events.

Conclusion

The centrality of nature is mainly of aesthetic value: the installed art is not independent; it constitutes a constant interplay with the environment by which it is inspired. It is important for us that the surroundings stay in their natural, original way. Because of that a responsible interaction with natural structures and the inclusion of the sculptures in the given surroundings of Flora and Fauna are our aim and a substantial part of our concept.
