a sculpture project making tribute to all who have been foreced to leave their own homeland in search of shelter.
Start of the project on "Art-night" in Murnau, Germany...my hometown.
little helpers feel free to start it going
Intention of the performance was to provoke sympathy with humans who have been uprooted because their life has been threatened in their homelands and they try to find shelter in places they don´t know the culture nor the language nor the people.
Without any political intention I speak about what it means to turn rootless for our well-being and emotional safeness and how we must not forget that after all we are all human beings with the same needs sharing the same planet.
The donations given the day of the performance were given to a local association to help
local refugees to start a new life in Murnau, my hometown.
after lots of hours of sanding and pollishing...
....the finished sculpture...
...in May 2016 went back to the town center to stay a day in front of the city hall.
