10. International Celebration of Contemporary Sculpture
Above the Bar
Balancing sculpture by Jerzy "Jotka" Kędziora
17 Pijarska St., Krakow
January 27, 2019 (Sunday), 11.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.
During START'19 (organized by the Sculpture Network) are going to be presented a new balancing sculpture by Jerzy 'Jotka' Kędziora 'Above the bar' from the cycle 'Athletes'.
'Athletes' - it is a completely new cycle, realized in a new modeling dynamic expression with elongated body proportions. Using the modern means in present sports disciplines the artist wants to refer back to the championships of the ancient Olympiads, the classical heroes. To eventually get close to the anatomy of failure. To the bar that was set too high. Of course, sculptures can be interpreted differently - in discussions about them, there were analogies to the fast pace of life, but also direct references to sports rivalry, struggle with the body and its capabilities. The cycle will ultimately consist of six sculptures. Four are finished, the other two are still in the creation process. The works have not been exposed so far (apart from 'An Athlete III' that is displayed in the Sculpture Park Art-St-Urban in Switzerland).
Everyone is welcome to participate in the event by sharing posts and pictures with the sculpture.
The event is supported by
the Municipality of Krakow
