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.”

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?”
