Mur Wirtin Georg Kluver Pfandtner

CLUB PANAMUR was a temporary venue extravagnaza, I planned and realised in collaboration with architect Stefan Beer from junger_beer architectur for the nightly performance and music events of the contemporary art festival steirischer herbst in Graz 
in 2016. We transformed the original location by creating large-format photo prints (a massive thank you to Florian Aschka, who helped us so much taking the photographs), photo wallpapers, various floor designs as
 well as light boxes and several spatial installations. These arrangments inclduded a colourful and welcoming underwater tavern called the MUR WIRTIN, a giant
 TONGUE of the club para-site that would lead visitors through a few secret doors onto the DANCEFLOOR and a noctural BEAUTY SALON

The performance and music program of the festival was curated by Martin Baasch and Norman Palm.

Extract from the festival catalogue:

"Panamur is a shimmering, vital club parasite that digs down deep into its host – the Orpheum – and infiltrates the renowned performance venue playfully,
 subversively and subtly. The artists queer the rooms, shifting entrances, rotating familiar visual axes and perspectives and creating a darkly glamorous 
dance floor in the heart of the club. The foyer also becomes an inviting space, drawing on the traditional Buschenschank as its visual inspiration, but 
exaggerating and distorting it, humorously mixing in absurd arrangements of objects."
