Sculpted Water

Water as a source of life and a vital force, as an element and a mystery, has been captured by sculptors, who have frozen it in 3D, as shown in an exhibition featuring monstrous droplets frozen in time. Further along, there are two bodies that-we guess-are jumping into water, even though you cannot see the surface splash. Water, of course, is about movement and rippling, motifs that can be found in these sculptures.

The exhibition is the result of the 2nd Sculpting Workshop held this September, which had artists working among the natural scenery of the Zielonka Forest and using timber from the nearby woods. Their open-air studio was an agritourism farm in Pławno (Murowana Goślina municipality, near Poznań), where they used wood carving tools to make their sculptures. The workshop's main organizer, the Goślina Region Partner Committee, invited sculptors from Poland and abroad (Ukraine, Egypt and Germany) to take part. The exhibition, open through Dec. 15, is on display at Poznań's Palmiarnia (18 Matejki St.) as one of the fringe events accompanying the International Climate Change Conference that will be held in the city in early December.
