Sculpture Sings of Earth (Ger. Zeichen der Welt)


Sculpture Sings of Earth (Ger. Zeichen der Welt)


It is a low, oblong sculpture resembling a wave. "A ball floats between two oblong blocks, passing through gently flowing waves (...) on the ball, the inscription J. Bildhauer-Symposium as well as symbols and names of all the sculptors who took part in this venture were engraved".

Quote from "City Walk" (Ger. Stadtspaziergang)

Historical background

The sculpture is a gift to the city of Guben on the occasion of the 1985 World Day of Peace and the 750th anniversary of Guben.

“This sculpture […] was created […] along with other sculptures during the 6th Sculpting Symposium, which takes place every two years in Hoyerswerda, under the supervision of academician Jurgen von Woyski. Artists from socialist countries - one woman and nine men - designed over 11 sculptures in the general theme of "Experimental Friendship"; all of them were approached very individually, addressing the most pressing issues of human life".

Quotes from "City Walk" (Ger. Stadtspaziergang).

Artwork review

“The globe in the middle of the oceans symbolically represents the play of various artists from different countries; the forms seem to be deliberately chosen and leave the viewer free to interpret”.
