Urban Sculptures

   

VOGELFREI


Territorial Ambiguity


On the search for a natural habitat for my bird-sculptures, I came across the Sihl river. This river-bed, including it's banks, belong to the territory of the "Kanton Zürich". So rather then applying for a permit, I'm using the shortcomings of our bureaucratic system,to stealthily position my art-work in full public view.

 

Auf der Such nach einem natürlichen Lebensraum für meine Vogel-Skulpturen, stiess ich auf die Sihl. Diese Flussbett, einschliesslich seiner Uferzonen, gehört dem Kanton Zürich. Anstatt um eine Bewilligung zu buhlen, nutze ich die Mängel dieses bürokratischen Molochs, um meine 

Kunstwerke in aller Oeffentlichkeit, geheim zu positionieren.
