Description: The camera pans from this detail of an Alpine-style wall painting to a firehouse – with subtle dripping in the background – and there it is, the archaic concept of water, which baptizes and feeds and helps things grow and protects. Josef Dabernig and Isabella Hollauf’s Aquarena – a combination of the words aqua and arena – approaches the link between water and (the public) space with a certain amount of fondness.
