6th international Sculpture Symposium,Davos,16-23 July 2010
Deadline : March 31. 2010 (postmark)
About 100 metres away,you will see a man chipping wood.You can see that the wood
he is cutting has already split and is falling apart as the sound(of the axe hitting the wood)reaches you.This may represent a person working through life until we finally hear the word which belongs to her, the soul which speaks of her.
The 6th Sculptor Symposium of Davos will take place from 16.-23. July 2010 in Davos. Davos is a city in the mountains,famous for the WEF(World Economic Forum),for skiing and the famous expressionist painter E.L.Kirchner.(www.davos.ch)
Specially invited artists create sculptures on a given theme over a period of six days.Spectators have the chance to see art in action, to follow the fascinating stages of each sculpture from start to completion and to talk to the talented artists.Approximately twelve artists from all over the world will be working in Davos with wood and stone.The working place will be around a small lake with a platform on the lake and fountains, a location with an idyllic atmosphere.The artist has the opportunity to exhibit some smaller sculptures in the hotel area during the period of the symposium, after consultation with the hotel and the symposium office.
The private view(vernissage) will be on 22. July.
Two workshops for laities and autodidacts will happen parallel to the symposium(17-19.07 and 20-22.07),in which the participants will be taught to sculpt by a professional.
