I wrote about the Public Art Project of Artist Susi Gelb last time already - that was more or less the "Making Of". This time we actually went and saw the project ourselves. Susi gave us a very personal and entertaining tour of all three locations the project is taking place. Although we had some behind-the-scenes knowledge of the eagle part, the many other scopes made for some entertaining stories. "No such things grow here"with everything that grows, flies, swims and plops seems completely integrated by the people of Munich in their daily doings, they are relaxing on the benches watching the movie and like to party there at night... Art that gives you a good feeling - too bad it's not going to last longer.
Susi and Paul having a little refreshment. It's summer in the city and the girls behind them are relaxing on the benches - also designed by Susi out of concrete and integrated thermo tiles - the English Garden now reaches down to Max-Joseph-Platz.
The crooked palm tree at Odeonsplatz is looking for a new home after the project is over. It would be nice if it could stay on in a public place as a reminder. "I was once planted in front of the Feldherrnhalle by Susi Gelb, no kidding"....
The yellow Python swimming in a blue pool was one of my visual favorites, but of course I stayed true to our Eagle. If you want to see the snake you have to go there and watch the film yourself ;)
