New Monument Proposal – Ervin Babić
Deconstruction of male and female symbols and their mutual intertwining forms a universal symbol (monument) to the human being (individual being, collective being). The merging of the energies of male and female symbols gives rise to a universal symbol (monument) that is compact and much stronger.
b) ELEMENTS OF THE FORM
Circle and line, as basic geometrical forms. Life has many circular forms, e.g. the life circle, the shape of the Earth, the Sun, the changes of seasons, the food cycle, the life-death cycle, etc.
The universal symbol (monument) of circle dematerializes space and degrades time. It is in opposition to figure (figure, personality, idol, ideology). This monument symbolizes time (past-present-future) and every man, thus it possesses the energy that calms us down and relaxes us, and incites in us forever new positive and creative acts.
Project received for the competition for new monument/artwork in public space in the category “Monument-sign”.
