Witches' Place

2003

Chimneys which project from the forest floor, a weather vane, gates made from large oven forks, and a giant inverted witch's cauldron made from opened books of spells - in a small valley surrounded by paths - Lili Fischer fills the location always known as the "Witches' Place" with the leftovers of a supposedly lost witches' village. Her work bears witness to the legend of witches, and transports ramblers into a world of fairytales and magic. However, at the same time, it also draws attention to the gruesome persecution of people during the time of the trials of witches: At the other side of the hollow is the "interrogation place" where suspected witches were once condemned to death.
