Heute bleibt die Küche kalt, wir gehen in den Wienerwald (Today the kitchen's cold, we're going to the Vienna woods), kitchen, spaghetti; 4 photographs: each 70 x 105 cm (installation: Vienna, 2004)
A site-specific installation for the group show Egocaster organised by Supersaat, Vienna. Freshly (at least at the beginning) cooked spaghetti overflowed from every possible receptacle in the kitchen. The title is a rhyme meaning ‘Today the kitchen remains unused (cold), (and) we are going to the Vienna Woods’. Wienerwald is the the forest around the city of Vienna, as well as the name for a chicken restaurant chain in Austria). It also refers to the 1990 piece by Martin Kippenberger entitled Jetzt geh ich in den Birkenwald denn meine Pillen wirken bald (I am going into the birch forest as my pills will be taking effect soon). What a classic!
