25 years ago, the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden moved into the rooms of the villa dating back to 1870 in Wilhelmstraße 15. At close quaters lies the park "Warmer Damm" with a pond and duck house alive with a large number of ducks. Ella Ziegler (*1970) has watched the ducks finding calm, warmth and protection there.

At the occasion of the NKV's 25th jubilee in the Wilhelmstraße 15, the artist will build a scaled model of the villa housing the NKV for the last 25 years: The model's size (scale 1:10) will be adapted to the size of the ducks so that they can visit the NKV.

The model's realization and installation will be effected by AIDA, office for design and architecture, Wiesbaden.
