OVO - begehbare Installation

Rui Chafes (1966), a Portuguese sculptor with a focus on large iron sculptures, describes his installations as "events in space". An art lover from Fideris followed this guiding principle when he bought the sculpture «Seed» and had the matching room designed by Camilo Rebelo, an avant-garde architect from Portugal.


When building the right room, values such as origin, purity and universal mystery had to be taken into account. Rebelo created a framework in which the "seed" is recorded and exposed in order to create a reflection between art and architecture. This was followed by the proposal to build a cocoon so that corners and edges were omitted. This is intended to ensure a direct relationship between three components sculpture, emptiness and observer. The "cocoon" or the "Trojan egg" was cast from white concrete between the walls of the patrician house in a wooden shape corresponding to the dimensions.

Not only the surroundings and sculpture fascinate. No, the changing lighting provided by the floor, where a very thin layer of marble ensures translucency, is also impressive. Intensity and light color can be changed to allow different perceptions of space and sculpture in real time.

The installation can be visited by appointment. Entrance OVO directly from the parking lot in front of the house.
