Thalia: Book sculpture
This giant book sculpture was placed outside a bookstore called Thalia in Linz, Austria. Believe it or not, this is an advertisement!
To celebrate its status of European Capital of Culture 2009, Linz (Austria) organized in May 2007 a life-size exhibition, Schaurausch - Art in 50 Shop Windows.
The idea was to enable thirty Austrian and International artists to transform 50 storefronts.Here the work of Spanish artist Alicia Martin who reinterpreted the front of a bookstore, Thalia.
A 12 meters waterfall of books rose from the first floor of the library, to symbolize a tower of Babel from which knowledge would be available beyond the huge number of shelves that a bookstore used to have.
