helping to deliver some hay for horses to Kleylehof (no borders, no nations, no governments), Nickelsdorf, Austria, I took the chance to visit sculptor Franz Gyolcs living & working there next Hungarian border like an hermit.

Franz still (see post from 2007 here) works on his stonewalls around the arena he finished this summer in front of his studio: “will be the last day, it´too cold in the meantime.”

Franz Gyolcs

proudly he shows his technique of laying the stones without cement: “at least I handle every stone seven times”

“it accomodates around 500 people”, he tells

Franz Gyolcs, master of Kleylehof: “I do not know how to call it – has the form of an egg – the origin of all – is it landart?”

Franz opens for us his gallery with wooden sculptures

scene of action: Steyr, Austria. seen from the churchtower

Bernadette Huber´s artproject Die Macht des Tratsches – The power of gossp recently brought together with Christina Hinterleitner (chrisenberatung) some confusion to the inhabitants: „Die Macht des Tratsches. Ein Stresstest für Steyrdorf – The power of gossip. A stresstest for the village of Steyr“ was program. Here the website of the announcement of the opening of the faked brothel in Steyr´s red-light district: The return of desire

detailed reports about in German: der standard


Steyr, a small Upper Austrian city,  seems perfect as adaption for a stage & has even tradition in Punch & Judy show on such a traditional & serious stage as Steyrer-Kripperl:

cousin Franz Divinzenz gave the watchman in a short performance for his relatives & lead after the show behind the scenes

inside a  brothel? – oh no!:

historical Nadettes?

oh no! – serious historical citizens!



oh no! – participants of the Nativity play Steyrer-Kripperl

after the show walking aside the red-light district through the main street last month I felt the need to raise my  eyes:  signs / aushaengeschilder in the sky:

Saint George meets Saint Patrick – together we will rim the flag! …

… & close the door
