WHEN SNOW BECOMES ART

Strange shapes suddenly sprout from the snow. On closer examination, they turn out to be grotesque forms, sculptures, stories told in the midst of the landscape. What is this?

That’s right, it’s art. For the past 25 years, artists have come to the Silvretta Arena to turn the most important raw stuff of winter into something really special. Figures. Still life. Art. Crafted from nothing more than snow and ice. The event is called “Formen in Weiss” (Shapes in white), and presents the works of ten artists who’ve come to Ischgl from all four corners of the globe. The works of art are currently being created. So it’s just the right time to take a look back at the unforgettable creations of previous years.
