Clothing, work or kitchen utensils, crockery, furniture, grilles or gates – almost all objects of material folk culture are adorned with ornaments. 23 museum artefacts, which are connected to the 23 municipalities of the Capital of Culture 2024 and show ornaments or patterns, form the starting point of the exhibition.
These diverse patterns served as inspiration for the Gmunden painters to create 23 unique plates. The resulting works illustrate the diversity of forms in the Salzkammergut region and bear witness to its rich culture, craftsmanship and traditions. Patterns help to localise one’s own identity and demonstrate cultural affinity. At the same time, they serve to embellish. Whether lines, spirals, zigzag patterns, stars, hearts or tendrils – ornaments have been used, handed down and reinterpreted over the centuries and across regions.
