Trinkwasser, 2003

Aluminum, 156 × 47 × 38 cm

For the project series “Belluard – Bollwerk” in Fribourg (CHE), the video artist Franziska Koch created a fountain sculpture that was installed in the pedestrian zone for six months. The aluminium figure, in the form of a woman with a shopping bag, was produced from a body molding. 

The fountain’s water system carries drinking water to the head where it comes out of the eyes as if tears, and flows as a rivulet down the street to the nearest gutter.
