Sculpture Couple (Ger. Paar (Zwei Torsi))


Sculpture Couple (Ger. Paar (Zwei Torsi))


The sculpture consists of a square pedestal on which two upper human torsos are mounted, starting from the waist up. The torsos were sculptured without the head and shoulders, though. Both bodies face each other.

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

“Two torsos are two bodies connected by sensual pleasure that exhibits vitality and joy of life. Here, life and dynamism are closely related".
