Oberlix

Linz, 2013

Do you know these situations during coffee breaks at symposia or conferences, when people are gathering around this ubiquitous tables with their white cloths? They look a bit like roman legions preparing turtle-formation in an Asterix-comic book. Oberlix is an object disguised as one of these bistro tables that starts moving haphazardly in order to break up the formations so they can sort themselves anew in different formations. The intervention is accompanied by a hanging buffet of grapes.
