In response to our contemporary bad taste and to kitsch seen in the proportions and shapes of sculptural forms, the proposed work should influence positively its observer, offering him/her the guidelines in developing his/her attitude and view on architectural-sculptural forms of our time. A contemporary sculpture of turbe and gate should enable re-examining of the whole attitude on the post-war sculpture and architecture as the monuments to the times, or to a moment in history. Its form and materialization should influence contemporary and future artists by its provocative treatment of stone and glass as a static contradiction; it should also encourage people to meditate, and artists to experiment, seeking ever new ways of expressing themselves.

Project received for the competition for new monument/artwork in public space in the category “Ambience projects / Interventions in nature and urban space”.
