An original art project referred to as a Sculpture Park opened in Warsaw's Bródnowski Park June 21.
The project is an idea by outstanding contemporary Polish sculptor Paweł Althamer who enlisted the support of the Targówek district authorities and the Contemporary Art Museum in Warsaw.

The Sculpture Park features works by four contemporary sculptors, Olafur Eliasson, Monika Sosnowska, Rirkrit Tiravaniji from Thailand, and Althamer himself. It is the first part of a larger project intended to test the idea of "social sculpture" and art in public space, Althamer says.

Althamer's sculpture refers to the Garden of Eden and was created together with a landscape architect and children from a local school. Eliasson's work, called Negative Glacier Kaleidoscope, weighs over 300 kg. Sosnowska's sculpture is 4 meters in diameter and features an intricate tangle of iron rods and bars. Tiravanija's work brings to mind old science-fiction movies and can be used as a rain shelter.
