The light makes them shine: leaves and floral ornaments in the colorful glass windows in the west tower of Linz’s St. Mary’s Cathedral. Nature is currently also spreading out as a wool carpet in warm earth tones with plant and animal motifs at the viewer’s feet in the chapel.

Padded tree stumps surrounded by citrus and olive trees also invite you to linger in the Garden of Eden – and to read works by women, such as Marlen Haushofer, Sylvia Plath, Helena Adler, Janet Frame – all of whom are Monika Pichler’s favorite authors. The artist calls her spatial installation “in the garden of women,” which today opens the series “Artistic Positions on the Holy Family” and is part of the “DonnaStage” project to mark 100 years of St. Mary’s Cathedral.
