Magic Mountain by Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth
German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth have completed “Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain” in Duisburg, Germany. The walkable, giant out of doors sculpture Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain is currently in construction on the Heinrich Hildebrand Höhe in Duisburg Wanheim (D). It overtops the plateau with the artificially heaped-up mountain by 21m | 23yd therefore the visitor will rise by quite 45m | 49yd on top of the extent of the landscape and luxuriate in a formidable read over the Rhine. The curved flight of stairs inscribes sort of a signature on the landscape and recruits the nimbus of the classical roller coaster. Having a better look, the general public is disappointed in an exceedingly disarming approach. The visitor climbs on foot via differently steep steps the roller-coaster-sculpture. therefore the sculpture subtly and ironically plays with the dialectic of promise and disappointment, mobility and standstill. guests happen to briefly meet with oncoming guests on the steep and regarding 1m | 1yd wide corridors.
