STATUS QUO VADIS



Two black inflatable dinghies on which a highly polished stainless steel beam lies connecting the two: Eva Grubinger & Werner Feiersinger conceived an object as a symbol in their collaborative project Two Friends. The boats form a base for the minimalist object but they also have their own history. These boats, the appearance of which suggests that they do have a past — they were used by the Swiss army — is what the work is about, but it is also about the relationship to the beam lying on them. The different materials and surfaces generate a certain tension, moments of irritation and displacement. The work on the river can be read equally as a metaphorical and as a poetic gesture while demonstrating its own temporary character. The specific location and the town's own special position on the Danube are also addressed: a European river that has always served as a key transport route for people and goods. In the installation Two Friends by Eva Grubinger & Werner Feiersinger this aspect is also engaged with, although it is a voyage without a destination or purpose. The stainless steel beam is a kind of "reciprocal Readymade": not a solid, industrially produced I-beam, but a hand-made and hand-polished object. The current determines which way the rubber dinghies face as they are attached by long chains to lumps of concrete placed on the riverbed.
