This monumental installation by Swiss curator Klaus Littmann transforms the Wörthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt, Austria into a native central European forest from September 8–October 27. The project "seeks to become a memorial, reminding us that nature, which we so often take for granted, may someday only be found in specially designated spaces, as is already the case with animals in zoos." Around 300 trees were transplanted over the existing football pitch and over the course of time, the forest will take on a life of its own, change colors as the season turns, and attract wildlife. After the free art intervention ends, the forest will be carefully replanted on a public site in close proximity to Wörthersee Stadium at a scale of 1:1 and remain as a living forest sculpture.
