About the location (from Wiki):

Just a stone’s throw from the famous statue of Charlie Chaplin, the fork has likewise become an emblem for the town of Vevey. Yet though local inhabitants and those enjoying lakeside strolls embraced the fork from the outset, obtaining permission for it to take up permanent residence in Lake Geneva was no piece of cake! At its official inauguration ceremony in September 2009, County Counsellor Jacqueline de Quattro highlighted the symbolic power such works of art can acquire, as with the mermaid in Copenhagen, the Manneken Pis in Brussels and now the fork in Vevey. The fork is a statue of great stature! Made of stainless steel, it is 8m high and 1.3m wide. It was designed by Jean-Pierre Zaugg, a sculptor from Neuchâtel, Switzerland and embedded in the lake in February 1995 to commemorate the Alimentarium’s tenth anniversary. It was initially intended to grace the lakeshore in front of the Museum for one year.
