Peter Nettesheim: Radrennfahrer,
Schloßstraße , 68723Schwetzingen
Whether motorist, cyclist or pedestrian, anyone who goes from Schlossplatz in the direction of St Pancras’s Catholic Church will be bemused. At first sight a fast approaching “racing cyclist” seems to have steered his steely steed from the church forecourt in the forbidden direction of Schloßstraße. But the bemusement is quickly dispelled when the cyclist turns out to be a highly realistic wooden sculpture. The artist Peter Nettesheim loves to place his life-size figures in banal situations. He has staged his cyclist “deliberately as a traffic offender”.
