STA weekend presented a boat tour of the famous Starnberg lake, a trip popular with tourists but less frequented by the locals.
The installation in the Stranberg city hall brought the lake back into the heart of the town. The barrier surrounding the installation is a hint to the fact that most of the lake's shores are private (and very expensive) property not accessible to the public.
A video by Augusta & Kalle Laar
Lohengin observes two boats in permanent motion. Floating towards and away from each other, sometimes in unison then drifting apart again, they never stay too far away from each other for too long.
A love story lasting for 62 minutes.
