With the land­scape instal­la­tion “Hori­zon Field” of Antony Gorm­ley (2010–2012), a large scale con­tem­po­rary art project was under­tak­en in Lech for the first time, which was not only cel­e­brat­ed by guests and locals but also received enor­mous inter­na­tion­al broadcast.

The asso­ci­a­tion Hori­zon Field that is locat­ed in Vorarl­berg was found­ed in 2012 with the aim to make this instal­la­tion, which was real­ized by the Kun­sthaus Bre­genz in the Vorarl­berg alpine land­scape, per­ma­nent for the region. As this could not be accom­plished, the asso­ci­a­tion decid­ed to under­take a new project with anoth­er inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned con­tem­po­rary artist. From this idea, the Sky­space-Lech of James Tur­rell was developed.

    The Skyspace-Lech is an art experience that reaches many people, including many non-museum goers due to its atypical nature. James Turrell achieves a unique synthesis of landscape experience and contemporary art.
