Smellscape / Duftinstallation – Salotto, Vienna

Salotto Vienna

Der Künstler Paul Divjak hat den zarten Duft eines blühenden Orangenhains durch die New Yorker Neue Galerie wehen lassen. Er hat internationale Museen in mittelalterlich stinkende Kloaken verwandelt und zuletzt auf Einladung der Wiener Achse den Pratersauna Art Space zu einem synthetischen Erdbeerland gemacht.

Exklusiv für den Salotto Vienna destillierte und komponierte Divjak nun ein olfaktorisches Naturlandschaftsbild und holt Wald und Wiese, Hochnebel und Moos nach Aspern Seestadt. — mehr —

Im Prater blüh´n …

Duftinstallation / Smellscape

"Im Prater blüh´n wieder die Bäume", Duftinstallation im öffentlichen Raum

“Im Prater blüh´n wieder die Bäume”, MuseumQuartier

IM PRATER BLÜH´N WIEDER DIE BÄUME, Smellscape / scent installation, 2016
(In Prater the trees are blossoming again)

A project commissioned for Wir sind Wien-Festivals
Public Space, Vienna – in cooperation with: Kunst Haus Wien / Museum Hundertwasser, Historical Museum of Vienna, Museums Quarter Vienna, The Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art.

With „In Prater the trees are blossoming again “ Paul Divjak is focusing on the diversity of urban smell and the manipulation of our olfactory surroundings. Setting up temporary smellscapes (olfactory interventions) the artist is transferring odours of famous Vienna Prater (the Emperor´s former hunting grounds) into the very city center, and in front of several museums. 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.

Letztes Jahr in Jerusalem

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.

Diffusing Molecules #1

Eau Majesty @ Neue Galerie, N.Y

Diffusing Molecule #1

The idea was to develop an advanced room diffusing edition of my fragrance EAU MAJESTY (Saint Charles, Vienna) for the Neue Galerie, New York.

During the exhibition FRANZ XAVER MESSERSCHMIDT 1736-1783: FROM NEOCLASSICISM TO EXPRESSIONISM the whole museum was supposed to be smelling like a blossoming Royal Orangerie …
