Kletterstange, 1997

Bronze, 900 cm high

For this art-in-architecture art project, Torgler climbed a 9-meter-high pole covered with a layer of heated wax. A bronze casting was produced from the pole with the impressions left by his body, and was installed in the stairway of an old age home in Niederurnen. A dried gentian is preserved in a glass case in the elevator that ascends parallel to it.
