Art and winter sports can be combined perfectly in sunny St. Moritz. In addition to perfectly groomed pistes, kilometres of cross-country ski trails and wonderful snow hikes, in February and March this sophisticated winter sports resort also offers some of the larger works of art by the renowned artist Damian Hirst to be seen outside in the great outdoors.
According to the exhibition website the «highlights (…) include three large-scale outdoor sculptures. Hirst’s 12-foot-high sculpture The Monk (2014) is exhibited in the centre of the frozen Lake St. Moritz and Two Figures with a Drum (2013) has been installed on the south-western edge of the lake. Temple (2008), a 21-foot painted bronze sculpture depicting an anatomical model, is exhibited at Waldhaus Am See. Proteus (2012), also from Hirst’s Treasures series, depicting the shapeshifting sea god from Greek mythology, is located outside the Protestant Church. A visit of them can easily be combined with a stroll across the frozen lake and through the streets of the city.
The two historical exhibition venues – the neo-classical Forum Paracelsus in St. Moritz Bad and the Protestant Church in the centre of St. Moritz – are unfortunately closed until at least the end of February due to corona.
