Fritz Ganser

far-sight


Opening: 2010/11/20

The inseparable connection between an artwork in public space and the place where it is located only rarely becomes as obvious as in this case. Fritz Ganser’s minimalist sculpture weit-blick (far-sight) unequivocally refers to a specific landscape. On the one hand, the object obstructs our view of the scenery like a wall. On the other hand, it opens our view up like a viewing window. Moreover, the text attached to it explains, sometimes poetically, sometimes objectively, what we can recognize in this landscape. As a result, this “image of a landscape” develops on several levels.
