YUKI OYANAGI

Brez naslova / Untitled

Forma viva 1975

jeklene palice / steel bars

390 x 344 x 265 cm

TUŠ trgovski center, Ravne / TUŠ shopping mall, Ravne

Working on their monumental statues in Ravne, the artists from all over the world mainly explored the structural possibilities of design offered by the nature of iron and steel sculptural materials. With a greater or lesser power of various allusions, all these works address us with an abstract visual language, only Oyanagi’s contribution is emphatically figural. The composition of a zoomorphic human figure and an anthropomorphic bird is composed of steel laminations, whose rod-like surface texture is reminiscent of the shape of samurai armour. The hieratic symbolism, which radiates from the two sculptures engaged in mutual dialogue, is probably also rooted in ancient mythology.
