Bell, from: 24 Stops

Tobias Rehberger, 2015 / 2016

Around five kilometres long, the Rehberger-Weg links two countries, two municipalities, two cultural institutions – and countless stories. The path runs between Weil am Rhein and Riehen, between the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus. Guided by ‘24 Stops’, 24 waymarkers created by the artist Tobias Rehberger, walkers can explore a uniquely diverse natural and cultural landscape.

The ‘24 Stops’ include two bells marking the beginning and the end of the Rehberger-Weg. Cast by a professional bell maker, the bells each hang on a brass pole where they can be rung by hand.

The objects are not only waymarkers, but also have their own individual function. They can be used, they can fire the imagination and they can tell stories. The unusual colouring and idiom of their forms and materials are characteristic of Tobias Rehberger’s work. Their specific, at times slightly absurd, language of colours and forms evokes images and narratives.
