| With the aid of a network from modular
sculptures, a social network will be established. The Carts &
Waggons build up a conceptual framework for the transport of
history, stories, social coherence/togetherness and formal aesthetic
needs. The rods and rolls of a dismantled Waggon will be used in a
new piece of work. During the recycling process it may happen that
parts of a Kitchenwaggon are assembled into a new Bedroomwaggon. And
the remaining parts are used for an update installation of a
The main purpose of this project is to connect Places, Spaces, People and Situations by Copy/Paste parts of sculptures. By introducing a classification system to identify the Carts and Waggons, based on the continuous enumeration of the assembled and reassembled rolls, the manufacturing process of each Waggon can be traced down. The already existing Carts and Waggons are constantly redeveloped and modified. The owners of the sculptures can contribute to a large extent while changing the formal appearance of the sculpture. Primarily important is to recognize and comprehend historical, political and social processes, as well as active participation in the artistic process.
Example: The Waggon in the bedroom Helmut Kantors succeeds a Waggon which was installed in a kitchen before. This Kitchenwaggon is a successor of a Waggon which was built for a gallery project. This Gallerywaggon was stripped of rolls because they were assembled to a private Toilettewaggon.
