“The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” – metal sculpture installation (Video)

 

October 2014 I  was at Yatoo international nature art residence 2014, Gongju, South Korea. I was making an extremely big project – 777cm height metal Giraffe with smal wings, for surreality. At the and of 3 hard working weeks, it was time to install the sculpture at it’s place. I had started to dig the pit for the sculpture base and after a few minutes kind Mr Eung-woo Ri was helping me, then after a few more minutes Gunjan Tyagi was digging the hole with us, and one by one, in less then half a hour, about all 15 artists from the exhibition were in a collaboration working process of the sculpture installation, where the hole was digged, stones were moved and the base of the sculpture was buried. Just like in Mark Twain’s book “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”
