didier faustino's domestic 2.0 installation in vienna reorganises public space

didier faustino has transformed vienna’s graben street with his installation ‘domestic landscape 2.0’ for KÖR. the urban furniture assemblage which was constructed in the well-known area of the city is composed of blue paint steel structures which provoke a sense of curiosity and play.

based on the form of a chair, the gird-like structure for KÖR is multiplied as a matrix and then extended throughout the space. the addition of tables and dividers positioned at different heights establishes an interior space within an outdoor setting.

‘over the past few months, I have been working on a new ‘chair’ that is a kind of artifact and matrix. in my proposal, this chair is developed as the key element of the graben art space. the purpose of the chair is to call into question the relationship between the body and the ‘other’ through serial multiplication, the chair for individual use is transformed into a collective apparatus.’

one function that the piece aims to serve is the question of ownership towards public space. an area is conventionally characterized by various ownership structures both commercial and for advertising. the installation instead allows participants to engage and challenge their perception of the proposed space and their relation to it.
