Lois Weinberger - Debris Field

Exhibitions
From
until
Lois Weinberger’s artistic research pioneered the linking of art, society, and nature. For Documenta X in 1997, he planted a disused railway track with neophytes as a metaphor for processes of migration in our time. Debris Field is a poetic-archaeological research project, presenting ordinary and significant relics from the 700-year history of his parents’ farm, part of Stams Abbey (Tyrol). They include a mummified cat with apotropaic powers (the ability to ward off evil) and single shoes from dead people preserved in an underfloor space.
