Quo Vadis 2023
bronze, galvanized wire, polyester resin
My sculpture, Quo Vadis talks about people.
We as individuals live with others and create lives alongside others.
Where are we going as humans? What are our dreams? What do we wish for?
I believe the Q Station with its history is a very appropriate place to question our existence.
Placing the figures there in the sky scape is to free the souls and let wishes and memories be.
