Sister Clouds: A floating artwork cloud in Tübingen above the Neckar River near the Hölderlin Tower // An exhibition in Washtenaw
County Farm Park, Ann Arbor , Michigan, USA
Setting of Sister
Cloud No. 2, 2015 (soda straws),
ca. 350 x 100 x 100
cm , planned finish: June 25, 2015.
Starting June 25,
2015, passers-by on Tübingen's Neckar Bridge will see a monumental cloud created by Ursula Buchegger hovering over the river between the river bank willow trees and the esplanade on the river's
Plane Tree island, just beyond the Hölderlin Tower. It will be a twin sister to Sister Cloud No. 1, scheduled to appear simultaneously in Tübingen's partner city of Ann Arbor (USA).
All during the summer of 2015 the creation of Tübingen artist Ursula Buchegger will dominateart-meteorological skies stretching between the continents. Additionally, in both the Museum of the Hölderlin Society and the Hölderlin Tower garden, other
current works of the artist will be on exhibition. A catalogue, flyers, posters, postcards, and a postcard collection with original autographed originals will accompany the exhibition
Sister Cloud No.
The exhibition in
Ann Arbor (USA) will open during the city's festivities on May 30, 2015 in the presence of Mayor Arbogast and a delegation from Tübingen's cultural and business scenes.
On July 4, 2015 -
one month later - the 50th anniversary of the urban partnership will be commemorated with a major celebration in Tübingen. During this time, Ursula Buchegger's twin art clouds will appear on both
the American and German skies but will represent a single, world-embracing, joint sky.
Starting on April
28, 2015 the artist and her husband Sepp Buchegger, Tübingen's caricaturist and political cartoonist, will fly to the American Southwest. During the period leading up to the opening of the
exhibition in Ann Arbor, she will continue to create cloud vistas from soda straws and Uhu glue, while Sepp Buchegger will photographically document the growth of the "cloud" with pictures that
will later appear continuously on the artist's homepage as well as on Facebook and other networks.
The cloud will sail over Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois to Michigan and on to Ann Arbor, growing continuously as it travels in real time with drinking materials gathered
at each location, and in new media form as an integrated continuum of cloud
formations via Webcam transmissions, joining places which are separated in the real world by thousands of kilometers.
If you wish to help support this project - and transglobal art cloud formations - or if your company is interested
in becoming a sponsor of this project, or if you just need more information about the project plans, the artist will gladly be available to mail with you.
