PEACEMAKERS from “Dialogue With Emperor Qin China-EU sculpture Exhibition 2012-2018“

  

Austria | Peacemakers

The "Army" is a group of young people, drawn as a silhouette by faint lines. Therefore, the almost spiritual character emphasizes a bond to the army found on the burial site of the ancient emperor Qin Shihuangdi. 

The figures show their determination through upright postures and determined faces, still, leaving a playfully but quiet irony attached. 

The group of young people, serious, strong as well as childish and smooth. The group goes confidently into the future  

but not without a sense of reflectiveness and melancholy.

Belgium | Amazone

In ancient times The Amazons were described as formidable warriors, they had one of their breasts cut off so that they could use a bow and arrow while riding: they were no softies! The moment reproduced in the sculpture, suggests that the arrow has just been launched and has already hit its target, while in Bourdelle's magnificent sculpture the archer is all tension and it is the moment just before that is suggested. 

"Ô temps! suspends ton vol."/ "Time! suspend your flight."

France | Untitled

This sculpture is made of elementary forms that have been cut in simple plate-like sheets of metal.

They are erected, assembled and welded, sticking to the dimensions of the viewer. It is almost like a hand to hand.

It rotates slowly,in a certain movement that invites you to dance with it.

Whoever looks at it feels almost like a partner in a dance.

Germany | March To Absurdistan

“March to Absurdistan" is an echo to second world war, the boots marching design the Nazi sign of the swastika.

But we are informed everyday that there are other boots marching in present conflicts betweencountries in opposition. 

So the question is: are humans able to maintain peace on earth, or is it just inherent to our speciesto fight each other?

United Kingdom | Twister

My research visit to China in 2012 allowed me to visit the vast archaeological mausoleum of the Terracotta Warriors in Xian. A contemporary interpretation of this ceramic army is core to the understanding of my sculpture, entitled “Twister”. 

My interest in the Terracotta Warriors explores ideas of “acrobats and dancers” assigned to entertain the Emperor Qin in his afterlife.  Resulting artworks have been made at various scales and using wide ranging materials, from granite to fabricated aluminium.

The form of Twister is derived from tailored patterns: elegant contoured shapes that are one at the same time a metaphor for human identity. These primary flat outline shapes have been expanded into three-dimensional form - to create a sense of the human figure trapped within the ordered patterns of garments, which we wear in order to project our own identity to the outside world. 

Twister is also resonant of a sentinel or lookout: an erect figure, pirouetting along its vertical length – ever observant, and watchful over the Emperor throughout his afterlife.

Sweden | Heads

I always loved horses and I had one wild female named Omervina for many years! She was a coldblooded trotter but I used her as a riding horse and in the forest for loads of timbers.. When I was invited for this exhibition I at once thoughts about those nameless horses in all wars! A face passing by in the mist of time.. My horse heads are individuals but looks the same, just like the Terracotta army horses- same but not.. I try to use the Art of repeating, to make an impression or a picture stronger by repeating it.

My technique involves carving a sculpture in stone and then transforming it into glass by a rubbermold and wax forms and kiln casting techniques for a month, for each and every head.. Not to be forgotten when we will write the history of each horse head in this exhibition..
