Aslan’s self-adhesive film WrapTheHouse DFP 45 was recently used for an artwork by artists Silvia Wienefoet and Ralph Walczyk at the fortress Wilhelmsburg in Ulm, Germany.
Its rugged, weather-resistant, residue-free and removable film characteristics made the digitally printable film the ideal solution for the artwork. As part of the project Pop Up Space 2018, the artists laminated the lettering ‘This is mine all mine’ onto the outer wall of the fortress Wilhelmsburg.
They ask in a provocative way to whom a public space, a national monument of culture and at least the fortress itself belongs to. And the answer is astonishingly easy: it belongs to every single citizen of the city of Ulm. This is why the project Pop Up Space 2018 acts as a door opener to the fortress and currently is the setting for several art campaigns.
The artists Wienefoet and Walczyk were assisted by ASLAN’s local distribution partner Karl Gröner GmbH in Ulm. Its employees supervised the conception of the artwork, the company delivered the self-adhesive film and supported the technical staff of the executing sign maker during the process of applying.
The glossy and digitally printable ASLAN WrapTheHouse DFP 45 is perfectly suited for applications on facades and rough walls, even outdoors and without lamination. The walls of a 150 year old fortress are a challenging surface to apply a self-adhesive film on: they demand high quality products that stick flawlessly for the duration of the artwork but can be removed without leaving any residue.
