Koje Medienturm at quartier21 presents, lighted from the inside, a trophy which mahony preyed in Argentina. It consists of sewed potato bags of the brand MARIPOSA (butterfly), its shape reminding of an animal skin measuring the size of a full grown tiger. “Papa Mariposa” is part of a series of “furs” which mahony produced in Buenos Aires. The work refers to the site specific installation “das älteste Stückding: Meteoritensalon“ which is currently on show at Kunstverein Medienturm in Graz in the frame of the exhibition “DAS BLAUE LICHT. Der Hang zum Kristallinen in Kunst und Design“ (the blue light. The tendency towards the crystalline in art and design).

The catalogue "Glanz und Verderben" (glamour and doom) is presented in the frame of the exhibition opening at Kunstverein Medienturm, Graz. A book presentation including a reading and an exhibition opening takes place on July 1, at 7 p.m. at Space D / quartier21, MQ Vienna.

Vitus Weh talks about crystalline architecture of museums, Gilbert Bretterbauer reads from ":extended version" + accompanied by guitar of "son of the velvet rat". In addition, the artists' group mahony presents an installation at Koje Medienturm, MQ Vienna.
