“Beauty is only beautiful when it is impermanent!”

On 16 March, Solastalgia – a new installation by Grace Ellen Barkey – will open at Ebensee Landungsplatz train station. During a visit to Salzkammergut, Barkey observed how climate change affects this region. It inspired her to create the installation. She filmed a lone tree near a construction site. It was beautiful, but its leaves were made of waste plastic. The term ‘Solastalgia’ describes the grief incurred by the sense of loss that comes from experiencing landscape destruction or climate change. Barkey imagines a world without nature and has conceived a poetic garden with a gruesome prophecy that transforms the vacant train station in Ebensee into a dystopian garden.

Reservations are not required – the installation can be visited for free – but as Needcompany would like to welcome you in person, please let us know your attendance by sending an email to invitations@needcompany.org.

The installation Solastalgia runs from 17 March 2024 to 20 May 2024 and can be viewed every day from the first arrival to the last departure time of trains at the station. This will be followed by Windows & Mosaic of Leaves – Grace Ellen Barkey’s second installation opening on 20 May 2024 at the Kalvarienkirche in Gosau.

Last but not least! — Billy’s Joy will perform on 19 and 20 April at cc Strombeek. A ticket for Saturday 20 April also gives you access to Wunderkammer, the festival for musical gems and performances. This seventh edition is curated by Jan De Vroede in collaboration with Needcompany. Needcompany is pleased to welcome you there as well!
