Winter 30st of November 2018 until 19th of April 2019
during the winter season general opening hours (except on Monday) are between 12.00 (noon) and 21.00 (evening).
Light art can only be seen during sunrise and sunset times. Since the cupola must be open for this concept, good weather conditions are necessary.
During the day and good weather conditions (no showers) the cupola of the Skyspace stays opened. During this time visitors are invited to watch the changing skys combined with the moving light cone of the sun moving along the wall of the sensing room.
During bad weather times the cupola is closed and a second light art program will be performed. This second program creates a Ganzfeld – Effect at the area of the cupola.
The idea to build a Skyspace designed by James Turrell in Oberlech is excellent because it will allow the viewer to see the world from a new angle. Since James showed me the sky, I see it differently. It’s more beautiful, subtle, better. This is great art that appeals to the curator and, maybe even more importantly, to the amateur.
With the Skyspace project of James Turrell, Lech gains an aesthetically valuable, contemplative site where sensual and natural experience meet intellectual reflection. Impressive will be most of all the game between materiality and immateriality through the experiencing of light and color in the space, that reveals itself immediately to anyone that engages with it.
James Turrell in Lech- an enrichment of my life. A chance for a space in which inner concentration and wide perspectives can become reality.
The location of the lightroom with the grand panorama view will be, not just for our guests but also for the people of Vorarlberg, an occasion to perceive light in a new way.
The fantastic connection of light, sky, and space is an art experience that can also reach people that do not go to museums.
