ARTISTic temporary USE OF A FORMER PARKING LOT
The Cradle of Starnberg - Kick-off for a new museum quarter
On the property at Bahnhofstraße 1+3/corner of Bahnhofsplatz in Starnberg, the art project "Cradle of Starnberg" was erected on behalf of ehret+klein. This walk-in, magenta-colored large sculpture is a work by architectural artist Andreas Sarow - also known for "The Last Bastion" in Starnberg from 2019. The walk-in art project is intended to breathe new life into the site, which was last used as a temporary parking lot, in preparation for future redevelopment by ehret+klein. Starnberg citizens as well as day tourists can walk on this sculpture and perceive the site from different perspectives.
More history than you think
The name "Cradle of Starnberg" makes reference to the historical development of the property and the neighboring historic Lochmann mansion (built around 1520). It is the oldest house in Starnberg and is located on the museum grounds. By temporarily interrupting the classic progression of construction, use and demolition, Sarow transfers the object into a new context.
Make two out of one
Next to the cradle of Starnberg, ehret+klein rents the vacant space of the neighboring low-rise building to the Starnberg artist Paulo de Brito. Together with his wife Maria Rosina Lamp, the artist shows his works there in the form of painting, installation, video installation and sculptures. Curious people can view and purchase them in the context of his exhibitions.
