Swiss curators and artist duo, Francine Eggs and Andreas Bitschin, invited 23 artists from Germany and Switzerland to create a public art installation for Berlin’s newly built Gleisdreieck Park.
The Sleepers are wooden outdoor seats, laid out in groups along the path or next to the art installations. The star shape, resulting from the assemblage of existing railway sleepers (i.e. rectangular wooden pieces used as a base for railroad tracks), reminds and celebrates the Gleisdreieck Railway Network history. The iconic shape allows various layout and connection possibilities.
