Werner Bitzigeio: Drahtlinie,
Carl-Theodor-Straße , 68723Schwetzingen
In 2017, Schwetzingen celebrated Karl (Baron von) Drais’s maiden voyage on his velocipede, which took him on 12 June 1817 from Mannheim Palace in the direction of the summer residence in Schwetzingen. This event, together with the inventor and his world innovation, are remembered by the Drahtlinie
(Wire Line) - Werner Bitzigeio’s art piece fashioned from stainless steel wire, which clearly cites Drais's running machine. The artist, who lives at Winterspelt in the Eifel, suggests here that this is a three-dimensional drawing done by the inventor with wire in space.
