Auf Borg Und Fund

I invited daycare-staff and families to contribute common objects, toys and tools to be used to imprint their shapes into concrete casts.

"Auf Borg und Fund "(Lend and Found) (2003)

Size: 22 pieces, 0.5m x 0.3m x 0.05m
Medium: Concrete casts
Location: Day Care Centre, Aschenbrennerstrasse, Munich, Germany

I invited daycare-staff and families to contribute common objects, toys and tools to be used to imprint their shapes into concrete casts. Most shapes are clearly recognisable while others have become abstract as translated through the moulding process. In collaboration with the Bauhütte Hasenbergl/“Junge Arbeit” I created 22 reliefs that were than installed into the walls of the new building.

Realised project in an Art in Public Space competition of the City of Munich.
