Opening Hours

An over-sized metallic shining gold gramophone funnel is connected to an rotating platform which appears to be hovering above the ground. Two musical compositions, entitled "Vanity" and "High Fidelity" especially composed for the kinetic installation sound from the funnel.

"The spatial installation Vanity and High Fidelity, originally designed for the dome of the Tirol State Museum Ferdinandeum in Innsbruck, (2010/2011) is about the artist's relationship to the work of her grandfather (Rudolf Graf was conductor, pianist and composer from 1945−1959 at the Tirol State Museum Innsbruck), but also the perception of acoustic stimuli in space. Faithful high fidelity is about the ways in which we perceive sound, both those which we really experience, but also those which establish themselves in us, and those which, through the filter of memory persist within us."
(Verena Konrad, in Studiohefte 06, Julia Bornefeld. Vanity and High Fidelity, Tiroler Landesmuseen, p.41)
Julia Bornefeld, born in Kiel, lives and works in Berlin (D) and Bruneck (I).

Please note: There are only five persons on the platform at the same time.
