The lobby and gardens of the French embassy in Warsaw are hosting an exhibition of works by French sculptor Andrea Lomanzo until Sept. 20. The exhibition encompasses four monumental installations and six sculptures, all made of metal. The installations, including Construction d'un carde from 2000, combine monumental, austere forms with subtle, curving details that bring a hint of expressiveness. The largest installation at the exhibition is Construction d'un cercle, a circular sculpture four meters in diameter, placed at the entrance to the embassy.

¶widnik I from 2001, displayed in the embassy gardens, is a scaled-down copy of La Grande Cite, an almost nine-meter sculpture weighing five tons that was put up that year in ¶widnik near Lublin in eastern Poland.

Andrea Lomanzo, 48, is a regular guest at exhibitions in France and Poland, where he receives orders for monumental sculptures. His works are part of public and private collections in France, Poland, Germany, the United States and China.
