Sterz · Pasterz is an exhibition realised in collaboration with Siegfried Gutzelnig, Adrian's father, with it's central focus lying on the notion of origin and on the glacier as „frozen time“. Frozen time, stored for long, and more and more becoming fluid again in recent years.
Several rooms show installations combining the media they collected during a hike on the local alpine glacier „Pasterze“. Siegfried's photographs depict the glacier's landscape views, micro and macro-structures, whereas Adrian is taking a more conceptual perspective. Following the idea of “the frozen“ becoming alive, in society just as in the high mountains, he is presenting a series of works, sound and non-sound installations, interviews about personal memory and stones gathered all over Carinthia.
The impressions of eternity and transcience the glacier made to the artists were turned into an exhibition representing the abstract process of transformation.
