Tiger & Turtle – Magic MountainEdit profile
With a base of 44 x 37 meters and 21-meter construction height, the sculpture is not only one of the largest in Germany, but also a masterpiece of engineering. The stairway notably and elegantly unspools along a constantly evolving three-dimensional contour, accomplishing a heretofore impossible feat. Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth have jointly created artistic projects in public space and exhibition venues for the past eight years. Their works are site-specific and developed contextually, reflecting the manifold conditions of publicness. Since 2007 the artist duo lives and works in Hamburg, where Heike Mutter holds professorship at the Hochschule für bildende Künste.
