Poznań Hosts Sculpture Triennial

Works by 90 artists from across the world are on display in Poznań as part of the International Sculpture Triennial, one of Europe's leading contemporary sculpture events.

The main theme of the triennial, held at Poznań's Zamek Culture Center, is Genre Crisis. There are four international collective exhibitions, comprising three curator exhibitions and a competition exhibition, as well as an individual showing of Francesco Marino di Teana, a pre-eminent Italian sculptor, architect and philosopher who works in France. Witold Sobociński, a renowned Polish sculptor who works in Poznań and France, is the general exhibition curator.

Olivier Billard, the artistic director of the Strasbourg Contemporary Art Fair, was first charged with organizing the main exhibition and invited Europe's foremost galleries that exhibit sculpture to take part. When Billard's sudden death halted work on the exhibition, independent curator and art historian Laurence d'Ist stepped into the breach and invited more than 20 well-known sculptors from Poland, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark and Switzerland. The works in this part of the exhibition have been divided into the categories of human form, nature, materials and neo-pop culture.

More than 400 Polish and foreign works were submitted to the competition. The triennial jury awarded Hungarian sculptor Attila Rath Geber first prize for his treatment of heavy stone materials. Other prizes were awarded to Ronen Raz for his individual approach to materials and Daniela Krystyna Jałkiewicz for her artistic expression.

Rafał Jańca and Maciej Wierzbicki were awarded the Young Artists' Prize (open to people aged 35 and under) for their joint exhibition at the Zamek Culture Center. Di Teana received an honorary medal for the entirety of his artistic output. His exhibition is being held in the great hall of the culture center.
