About the Work

In Fluvial Yingbi, the artist is interested in the architectural elements in various forms: the screen wall yingbi he saw in classical gardens of Suzhou, and the billboard on top of the adjacent building visible from the entrance of the Antenna Space, and the rammed earth, a technique of wall-building he has read and later heard from the craftsmen he was cooperating with. For Födinger, the compression of the rammed earth has its conceptual anity to the fluvial sedimentation. Entwining two notions into a guiding metaphor, one would find in the sculptural compound with the above-mentioned archetypes molded altogether. The artist accentuates that these signifying sources should not only carry the rhetorical function, but also physically capable of supporting the weight of the work.
