STATION... see yourself see establishes the historic waiting room shelter of Wiener Linien as a kind of off-space in public space featuring artistic interventions. As an architectural reference, a walk-in staircase sculpture by Bartholomäus Kinner and Samuel Seger stands on the Schwarzenbergplatz in front of the Schwarzenberg monument. At the top of the staircase there is a view of the waiting hall shelter. The sculptural interventions, by Steffi Alte, Cäcilia Brown and Saskia te Nicklin (on the roof of the waiting hall) and that of Noële Ody which is on the inside, are photographically interpreted by Simone Bader/Rainer Egger, Yasmina Haddad and Abiona Esther Ojo.

1 Photographic intervention by Abiona Esther Ojo, STATION... project in public space, Vienna 

Intervention on top of STATION by Steffi Alte with Saskia Te Nicklin
"Looking at Schwarzenbergplatz- what is missing is nature and also animals. But what is nature today? You can
discuss if nature at all exists or if it is our human way of imagining what nature should be to us; a place where it
brings us peace and tranquillity, for any other animal, insect or plant – nature, the wild, is a place of an ongoing
struggle between life and death. You are either eating or being eaten.
The stronger the wind the floppier the tongue gets. There is no language left to describe nature but a mere
common "Bla, Blah, bLah". It is quite naughty." (Saskia Te Nicklin)

Intervention inside STATION by Noële Ody
"The bench in the tram shelter is a large bean pod, next to it is a huge butter toast. Or is it a French toast? Did I
forget to have breakfast? The potential germination power of the beans inside the pod is the capital on which you
rest and wait. An automat offers cassettes to exchange. In response to all questions? Music will save us all. Or
maybe this day." (Noële Ody)

Upcoming during the next 4 month: Photo-Series by Yasmina Haddad with Anahita Asadifar
"nous sommes les enfants des sorcières* que vous n´avez pas pu brulé.es (we are the kids of the witches* you weren´t able to burn)"

Past photo-series until today by Abiona Esther Ojo
"Different shots from previously unseen perspectives change the view again and again. Do not allow clear
attributions. The density of what is represented speaks for itself. The discrepancy between the hidden and
the transparent could not be bigger. ." (Abiona Esther Ojo)
