From the curatorial statement: “Since 5 years the stay hungry-team is going every August to an annual summer retreat at lovely Kleinwalsertal in Austria to rest for a while from frantic urban lifestyle and refresh the batteries for the last third of the year. On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of stay hungry project space in June 2019 a special exhibition format was conceived to celebrate in a special way: this time 26 artworks and contributions by 27 former and some new stay hungry artists and participants will go on a travel to Kleinwalsertal in Austria with us. The exhibition concept for 26 Relaxercises follows the idea of holiday, refreshment, enjoyment, meditation and taking a break from daily life. The interventions will take place in the public space of Kleinwalsertal at several locations  like on a peak, on meadows, on a mountain slope, next to a waterfall, in a cheese factory, on a sandy mountain stream beach, next to a tent, at the bus station, in the supermarket, in a chapel together with cows, lamas or the local postman etc.
The approach was to take one artwork or contribution by every artist/participant on that journey and to create a series of 26 individual outdoor exhibitions and interventions over the course of 5 days in the mid of August 2019. Every artwork was on view for only a few minutes to a few hours and there wasn’t a classical opening, exhibition period or audience, beside the local people who joined in accidently or became part of some of the works. In that sense stay hungry would like to enable a relaxing time for the submitted works and contributions in a natural as well as cultural interesting environment to bring them some relief from daily, arty life and pave the way for unforseen encounters with passers-by that can result in new points of view and generate exciting situations.
