The Küchenskulptur – Urban intervention on 100 meter


In 2016 for the art and culture festival Soho in Ottakring, we built the Kitchen Sculpture, a 100-meter-long wooden installation. Winding through a vacant cinema in the Sandleitenhof it makes its way out onto the street. Designed and built like a red ribbon, the Kitchen Sculpture was conceived to bring artists, visitors and neighbors together and lead them through the festival in the council housing building. It was used as kitchen, work table, counter, dining table, and seating furniture. During the festival, the sculpture was removed and sawed into construction kits, which visitors assembled into the Soho-Hocker.
