The Horizon Field association was founded at the beginning of 2012 with the aim of permanently preserving the installation of the same name by Antony Gormley, which was realized by Kunsthaus Bregenz 2010 in the Vorarlberg high mountain landscape, for the region. After this could not be achieved, the association decided to realize a new project with an internationally renowned contemporary artist.
In cooperation with Galerie Häusler Contemporary, the association has succeeded in winning James Turrell for a Skyspace project in Lech. During his visit to Lech in September 2014, Turrell was fascinated by the unique high mountain landscape and chose the location “Tannegg” in Oberlech as the most suitable location for a very special, underground Skyspace. The “Tannegg” is a small hill above the top station of the Schloßkopfbahn cable car, along which a hiking trail passes both in summer and winter and which is also easily accessible from the ski run to Oberlech. Nevertheless, it lies 1,780 metres above the populated area and offers a unique panorama.
The Skyspace-Lech is arguably most impressive during the time (not daytime), when the sun goes down and the night approaches. This is when the Skyspace-Concept with its specifically developed light art from James Turrell can be seen. Therefore, all guided tours are scheduled around the specific sunset-time of a chosen day.
• December 1st – April 20th: Weekly tours take place on Tuesday (in English) and on Friday (in German) evening at the respective sunset-time.
June 1st – November 30th: Weekly tours take place every Friday in German, in English on request.
April 20th – May 31st: Due to the restrictive opening hours because of nature protection requirements no guided tours can be offered during this period.
