In issue 4 of his magazine, Florian Werner presents, for the fourth time now, a glimpse into the many artistic activities in the Kunstquartier Hospiz. This issue of the magazine demonstrates the continuous involvement with the theme of art and strikingly documents how it is being consistently incorporated into the hotel. With the 2011/12 season about to begin, Florian Werner has chosen “the Art of Encountering” as the key element and guiding theme for the activities in his hotel Arlberg Hospiz Hotel and, in doing so, goes one step further than before. After having declared the hotel an exhibition venue, initiated an Artist in Residence programme in combination with an art prize, and established a new gallery in Bregenz, he is now also making art the identifying characteristic of everything that goes on in his hotel and, as a result, is making the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel a uniquely distinctive place. With this year’s overall theme of “portrayal”, Florian Werner is also concentrating on another of the significant and repeatedly asked questions in the debate about art. The relationship between the object, the item to be depicted, and the portrayal has been the preoccupation of philisophy and epistemology since time immemorial and the debate is constantly changing. What is the relationship between the original image and the image portrayed and, following on from this, to what extent is human perception a portrayal of reality? In this, the artistic works of Alfredo Barsuglia and Patrick Grijalvo Milos are examples of two ways of appreciating art that are at first sight quite contrary in terms of content and aesthetics, but which, at a second glance, both have in common the question of what is possible in the “portrayal”. Both attempt to portray real objects – whether it is the painted portrait of a person or the photographic representation of a building and, in so doing, to be as close as possible to the original image while, at the same time, attaining the greatest degree possible of artistic individuality. They are certainly extremely different in the way they express this attempt – while Alfredo Barsuglia recreates in a realistic way using paint, Milos uses realistic photographic closeness to produce abstract, graphical imagery which has largely distanced itself from the original object. The process of portrayal is also an emancipatory one, because it also always involves an element of rapture from the source. Another emancipatory process is Florian Werner‘s perseverence in bringing art into his hotel. We are delighted to assist him on this journey.

* mission statement In its approach the Kunstquartier Hospiz corresponds with to that of the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel as a traditional, exclusive hotel with a focus on the guests and their well-being. In the Kunstquartier Hospiz, the focus is on the artist instead of the guest. Accordingly, all activities at the Kunstquartier Hospiz are based on fair and open principles of community. In accordance with the tradition of the Brotherhood of St. Christoph, the Kunstquartier Hospiz serves the purpose of promoting and making visible a younger generation of artists at the start of their creative lives. The Kunstquartier Hospiz provides access to all artistic directions, from traditional artistic formats to New Media Art. The multi-layered programme at the Kunstquartier Hospiz is as dedicated to hotel guests as it is to lovers of art. The Kunstquartier Hospiz is dedicated to its regional location, with which it is closely integrated and carries out an active exchange, without losing sight of the international focus. The Kunstquartier Hospiz is another exclusive trademark of the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel.

artists in residence


Florian Werner has opened his 70 m2 studio and made it available to 14 national and international artists. The artists paint and relax on site in the Hospiz for one week each. Each day from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the artists provide guests of the Hospiz studio insights into their work and look forward to interesting discussions and an invigorating exchange of opinions.

alfredo barsuglia portrayal / image

In his installations Alfredo Barsuglia questions the permanence of glamour and celebrity culture. What are the mechanisms for accepting beauty, how do they operate and via which media are they conveyed and reinforced? In the process Barsuglia plays with stylistic elements from fairy tales as well as with erotic references and allusions to the world of show business. Some of his extensive installations, which are in the trompe l’oeil tradition, are portraits. In these Barsuglia does not depict individuals, but examples of a social condition. He is interested in the daily rituals and presents these in relation to celebrity culture – the things we are all accustomed to do naturally and which, for exactly that reason, escape our notice.

The photographs of Patrik Grijalvo Millois are always inspired by an actual place – in the „ROTHKO“ series of works it is the Kunsthaus Bregenz, which the young artist came to know during a two month stay there. The artist has explored in minute detail the architecture and lighting design of Peter Zumthor’s prizewinning building and his series of works places a structural focus on what it contains. In these he concentrates on the surfaces, shapes, colours and atmospheric aspects of the building, like a painter. The result is a unique set of photographic works, which shed a new light on the Kunsthaus Bregenz.

fantastisches lebewesen (fantastic life form)

Born 1982 in Zams/AT Course of study in Kramsach/AT Lives and works in Zirl/AT The new figure of St. Christopher has been completed in time for the celebrations commemorating the 625th anniversary of the Brotherhood of St Christopher on the second weekend in July. Having already been unveiled to the public, the statue is due to be officially inaugurated on the 9th of July. Tyrolean artist Florian Senn has moved away from traditional depictions of St. Christopher which show him as a giant of a man struggling under the weight of his burden; instead, Senn offers his own interpretation - his steel figure, seven metres tall and weighing nearly two tons, depicts a patron saint effortlessly carrying the Christ child and – as study of the saints tells us – the whole burden of mankind. “Everything’s getting easier”, explains the artist, “today it’s easier to fulfil your dreams”. The St. Christopher statue was commissioned by the Kunstquartier Hospiz and took over 1,000 hours to complete. Gallery-founders Ursula und Florian Werner are delighted with the finished work. “This sculpture is a real cultural asset for St. Christoph and provides a new link

The play of colours, shapes and sizes are the parameters Hutzinger works within.

Course of study in Munich/DE Lives and works in Kastelruth/Castelrotto/IT In his works, Hubert Kostner addresses touristic clichés in an ironic style and parodies the kitsch and one-dimensional perception of the alpine surroundings. His miniature landscapes and his alpine landscape canvases adopt the theme of the excessive and problematic use of this space without pointing the moral finger. He gives a different significance to his subjects, which stem from objects used in his surroundings, which he transforms, giving them a new context. For example, an anvil becomes an oversized hammer and reminds us of the words from one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s poems, “You must either mount or fall, either conquer and rule or serve and lose, suffer or triumph, be the anvil or the hammer”.

Launch Pad 65L

Born 1965 in Kurgan/Siberia/RU Course of study in Moscow/RU Lives and works in Vienna /AT Lena Lapschina‘s complex artistic work is defined by her preoccupation with the interaction between situations in individuals‘ daily lives and their effect and relevance to society. Her conceptual approach takes the form of photographic and video works. On her travels she films and photographs the situations in the daily life of an artist, which she mixes with scenes from the world of the media and uses in an unusual way. These are always very close and intimate aspects of private observation, which she deals with publicly.
