A project by Katrin Hornek in collaboration with Sabina Holzer and the bodystone collection of Dr. Tessadri

Tischofer cave in the Kaisergebirge, Kufstein
23.- 24.06.2018
from 10:00 to 18:00

Rock-formers are people who produce body stones such as gallstones, bladder stones or kidney stones in their organs. They consist of minerals that are formed in similar processes both inside and outside the body. Probably the most extensive contemporary collection of such body stones in Austria is located at the University of Innsbruck. It has been built up by the geologist Richard Tessadri († 2017) over the last 30 years. Parts of this collection will be for the first time publicly shown in an installation arrangement at the Tischofer Cave – the oldest archeological site in Tyrol. A connecting moment between organically and inorganically organized, an encounter between the inside and the outside.

score set 1, # Lean back to the cave walls with your eyes closed. Think of the mineral components of your body like bones and teeth. Let yourself mineralize.
