EVENT LANGUAGE: GERMAN.
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the First Vienna Spring Water Main, the City of Vienna in cooperation with KÖR Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Wien will erect an anniversary fountain in the Sonnwendviertel in Favoriten until fall 2023.
The artist collective Gelatin convinced the jury of the artistic competition with its design. WirWasser is a fountain sculpture that transports the vitality of baroque fountain installations into the present and forms an organic counterweight to the sobriety of the built environment. The water contained in the fountain is proverbially held together by a circle of people who protect it and bear responsibility for its preservation.
With its sculptural realization, Gelatin creates an identity-forming strong landmark that stands for a community in a recently intensively grown district of the city, whose future lies in the cohesion of diversity.
