Using habitat dioramas in the Hall of Mammals of the Grand Rapids Public Museum, Alois has created a site-specific installation. What is site-specific? It is the art that is taking over the space and create a special work for those conditions. In the installation Habitat Kronschlaeger juxtaposes existing landscapes of 27 dioramas built in the second half of the 20th-Century with contemporary architectural interventions. The idea is to explore what happens in a geometric abstraction superimposing to a conventional simple space.
