Presentation of ancient grape-seeds

TABERNACULUM is an installation to present ancient grape-seeds from Georgian Republic (golden replica), grape-seeds from South Tyrol and seeds from the worlds biggest and oldest vine. Besides, the aim is to give the possibility to experience grape-seeds as such. For this reason the installation made of corten-steel (brown, natural aspect) stays purposely in the background - it seems to grow out of the hillside. So the full attention is directed to the grape-seeds. Furthermore a touchable, big bronze grape-seed intensifies the reference to and the memory of these unique seeds.
