Transforming a gallery with a staircase made out of found scrap lumber, tree branches and reclaimed tables and chairs, Austrian art collective Gelitin's latest stunt continues their interactive work exploring materiality, DIY aesthetics and their own brand of decadent foolishness.

While the title of the piece ironically refers to the gallery's location at Vienna's Palais Eschenbach, the work itself looks like the maniacally inspired work of a carpenter set loose in a used furniture store.

Those in Vienna this Friday and Saturday can catch two performances, which are not to be missed if Gelitin's past performances are any indication.
