2019/04/02: Richard Reuys created a sculpture for the Water Event during the Yoko Ono retrospective called Peace is Power at Museum der bildenden Künste (MdbK), Leipzig
The sculpture is based on a „Shishi Odoshi“, a fountain used in Japanese gardens to frighten away unwanted animals. But the sound of flowing water and the repetitive sound of a pipe hitting a rock also create a calming, meditative effect.
Apart from water, the sculpture consists of two US Army discarded missile containers, a stone, and a pipe system with a pump. The containers serve on the one hand as a vessel for the water and on the other hand as a holder for the well inlet.
The complete object is painted white. Only the type plates indicate the original purpose of the containers.
Appearance and meaning
The pure and white appearance, the soothing sound of the vivid watercourse and the recurring tapping of the fountain system transform the former missile containers into a peaceful yet dynamic sculpture.
Not alone, but in their interaction water and object symbolize the power of peace.
The dimensions (LxWxH):
280x160x130cm / 110.3x63x51.2 in., 300kg
