Artist Statement:


    “Samalu” finds inspiration in old folk believes and shaman rituals, but brings the meaning of mountain myths and worship into today’s contemporary Austria and Korea. A non-linear story around this theme explores how we in our highly modern societies are attached to the nature through the mountains. The natural interface constructed of a number of stones refers to stone piles found on hiking trails around the world, each stone concealing an unique story. By lifting one or several of the real fist-size stones the visitor can experience various myths from both countries and explore different mountain landscapes.
