Sarkanais slidkalniņš / The Red Slide

Skulptūra “Sarkanais slidkalniņš”, Raumas Biennāle, 2012

Sculpture „Red slide”, Rauma Biennal, 2012

 

The Red Slide (2012) is constructed especially for Rauma Biennal Balticum 2012. Curator Henna Panu wrote: “The composition evokes the idea of passing war down from generation to generation, like the greatest blight of mankind that has been inevitable so far. Humans are the most disharmonious creatures on Earth. Questions about war and crisis situations caused by people do not only deal with heroism, achievement, and losses. The essence of humanity may be studied systematically through experiences of war, and hopefully the goal is improvement; reaching peaceful solutions in conflicts situations.”
