ROMAN SIGNER
Installation

2000. Activated on special occasions.

Romans Signer was the only artist to date who was hardly interested in the landscape of Schönthal. There was and is plenty of green in Appenzell, where he was born in 1938 and nearby in St. Gallen, where he now lives. No one knows if the inconspicuous former army munitions depot he selected for his intervention was ever used for its specific function. But he still needed army authorization for his new appropriation. Signer has liberated the depot from its futility and now loudly draws attention to its original purpose.
