A welcome attendant symptom of a visit to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK Festival Headquarters is a sometimes casual, sometimes concrete examination of the architecture. In this case: the utilitarian architecture of a fire escape. Initiated by the festival, the French designer Diego Faivre juxtaposes the rigid geometric order of the complex in an organic construct that questions the building in its essentiality.
As a result, a mundane fire escape is turned into a colorful, playful intervention that will certainly alter our perception of the place. In his artistic praxis, Faivre, who lives in the Netherlands, repeatedly alternates between seriousness, absurdity, and lyricism – some thing that will manifest itself in Vienna.
