Brücke Baden, 2002

Bronze, diverse formats

As part of an art-in-architecture project, René Zach installed 96 bronze birds on the balustrade of the Schiefen Brücke in Baden (Aargau). 

The life-sized figures of local bird species were cast by the Kunstgiesserei based on 7 models created by a wood-carver from Brienze. The casting, which were left as cast, were installed according to a randomly established rhythm, which was mirrored inverted on the other side of the bridge.
