Es gibt Stimmen, die sagen, Wasser könne verschiedene Strukturen annehmen, es würde auf Umgebungseinflüsse und gar Emotionen reagieren, es hätte ein Gedächtnis und könne Information speichern.

The aroma of musty earth, woods, lime blossoms and lilac is to be experienced at urban locations, which usually are defined by the lack of any green.The audience is such invited into the realm of the sense of smell and to reflect everyday perceptions.

Duftinstallation, Jüdisches Museum Hohenems

Jerusalem - Mahane Jehuda

Jerusalem – Mahane Jehuda Market

Smellscape / scent installation, 2015
Garden of the Jewish Museum, Hohenems
(In cooperation with the On-Site Art Festival)

With his smellscape Paul Divjak is stepping into an olfactory dialogue with the current exhibition at the Jewish Museum: „A Streetcar Named Desired“, which takes the visitors on a reflective journey through Jerusalem by following the route of tram number 1, crossing and connecting the various „Jerusalems“.
In „L´année dernière à Jersualem“ the artist is describing a stroll through the city of Jerusalem. Subjective memories concerning the sense of smell enfold a assiciative and symbolic bouquet of the Holy city, center of three religions. Such evoking the aura of the very place of different cultures.
