Rolandseck – Garten Arp Museum / B9

In addition to traffic connections via rail, water and road, Res Ingold's fictitious and yet real helicopter landing site also makes the airspace accessible to the museum. Within the framework of his art project »ingold airlines« the artist sees flying – in addition to the material process – as a non-material means of transport for thoughts, information and emotions.

Concept of the work

Res Ingold was born in Emmental in 1954. He lives and works in Cologne, Munich and Italy.

Res Ingold created his arp heliport, a helicopter landing site, in Rolandseck. The enterprise, »ingold airlines«, is more than an airline, however. It is a mental attitude, an inner conviction. For »ingold airlines« flying is only partly a real process. It is also an immaterial idea.

For »ingold airlines« flying is only partly a real process. It is also an immaterial idea.

In addition to the perfecting of its services as a provider of flights for people and goods, »ingold airlines« is also a provider of transport for immaterial goods such as thoughts, information and emotional energy.

Within the framework of the Riverside Sculpture Park at Remagen public art project, his sculpture is consequently a fictitious and at the same time a real helicopter landing site. As well as the existing transport routes by rail, road and river, with the addition of this work, now the airspace is also accessible for the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck.
