Austrian artist Klaus Littmann has transformed the Wörthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt, Austria, into a forest as part of an art installation looking to change people's perception of nature.

The 32,000-capacity stadium, home of SK Austria Klagenfurt football club, has been fitted with a mini-forest of 300 trees what is set to become Austria’s largest public art installation.

Overseen by Enea Landscape Architecture, the “For Forest: the unending attraction of nature" project was inspired by The Unending Attraction of Nature, a dystopian drawing by Austrian artist and architect Max Peintner.

Through the installation, Littmann aims to "challenge our perception of nature" and question its future.

"The project seeks to become a memorial, reminding us that nature, which we so often take for granted, may someday only be found in specially designated spaces, as is already the case with animals in zoos," Littmann said.

The installation will open to the public on 8 September and will run until 27 October 2019. The forest will then be carefully replanted on a public site in close proximity to Wörthersee Stadium at a scale of 1:1 and remain as a living ‘forest sculpture’.

Parallel to this, a pavilion will be built in order to document the project for the long-term.
