Installation view and detail, Ministry of Transport, 2014
Ministry of Transport + X
Bicycle 140 × 70 × 120cm, bronze 28 × 4,5 × 41cm
A bike is hanging half in the air. It is secured to the railing of the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. Looking closer one can see that the bike is not secured with a bicycle lock. A black bronze in the shape of a bicycle lock has been produced and welded around the bicycle and the railing at the Ministry to secure it. Ministry, bicycle and bronze were combined to form a site specific installation in a public place. Left behind on site, the installation staged itself in the context of other sculptures in public space until it has been removed.
