MUSE OF INDUSTRY II
"Muse of Industry": Born of the material of the industrial age, Inga Aru’s Muse emerges full of grace and elegance in numerous individual parts from a large-format steel plate and presents itself to the beholder as a three-dimensional abstract female figure in all its perfection. In the spirit of the epoch of its genesis, this modern muse has a standardization and seriality. It is the contemporary ap-pearance of a millennia-old inspirational awakener. (Almut Rix)
