An exhibition created as a “model situation” reflects the crucial changes in the development of our sculpture in the 20th and 21st century (from traditional sculpture to contemporary forms) with the aim to educate the public and contribute to general recognition of sculpture.
The aim of the exhibition is to present at once in a single room the selected artworks of rather monumental dimensions, due to which they stayed unexhibited in depositaries for a relatively long time. In one room, artworks from 1960s encounter with contemporary pieces created recently by the authors of the middle and younger generation.
The installation and the selection evoke an absent, vanishing body, the scene comes to life as the visitors move through it, becoming an active part of the installation.
