Ouah Wau (to Donna Haraway)
Material: Painted stainless steel.
Dimensions: 800 x 390 cm.
Ouah Wau (to Donna Haraway) is a structure to support a tree which is collapsing. The graphic forms at the bottom of the sculpture serve as games or exercises for dogs which are able to run freely in that part of the park. The work thereby creates a link between trees and animals as “companion species”, to borrow Donna Haraway’s terminology. Under a playful appearance, Ouah Wau (to Donna Haraway) questions the hierarchy established between different species, revaluing their fundamental interdependence.
Developed for Geneva Sculpture Garden 2022.
