linz: höhenrausch

we like art that's offbeat...and in offbeat places. that's why we're mesmerized by the höhenrausch [thrill of heights] show, launching fri - may 29 at 7 rooftop locations across linz. part of the art in the city trilogy, the works of a string of international contemporary artists is displayed high in the sky, including pipilotti rist, shaun gladwell, shih-yung ku and the magnificent atelier bow-wow. the tokyo-based architects created linz super branch, a sculpture and a stairway to heaven at the same time, serving as a bridge into a different land. stepping onto it, you leave everything else behind: the daily rat-race, job stress and anxiety. how appealing is that? © höhenrausch
