Garden of Ornaments by Viron Erol Vert

Installation in the foyer and cafe of Kunsthalle Baden-Baden

The artistic design of the foyer of the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and Café Kunsthalle follows a long tradition. In 2024, the artist Viron Erol Vert takes over the redesign and redesign of the rooms.

Entitled Garden of Ornaments, the installation refers to the multicultural history of Baden-Baden, in particular the spa culture and its transcultural development. Vert always positions his research from different directions, especially in order to gain a comprehensive view of the city's structure, its multi-layered and extensive history and to be able to analyze and understand the current atmosphere.

During his extensive research in Baden-Baden, which lasted several years, Viron Erol Vert explored the city and its socio-cultural characteristics: The water at the center of the city, its role as a remedy and connecting element, the coming together of people of many origins, the confluence of many cultures, languages since the beginning of its history and nature. Its reflections can be found in the light, colors, form, architecture and ornamentation within the installation. 

The exhibition “Garden of Ornaments” takes place in parallel to the Ornamenta 2024 Lust Programme, corresponding to the theme Zum Eros. All Ornamenta Lust programmes are mainly German spoken but you are welcome to join.
