Sculpture Line
Nord Art - Büdelsdorf 2019

NordArt ranks among the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe. Year after year, the exhibition designed by chief curator Wolfgang Gramm, redefines itself anew, setting new priorities, focusing on a country with its own pavilion, cooperating with embassies, cultural institutions and curators of the respective countries. In synergy with the imposing backdrop of the historic iron foundry, the exhibits of more than 200 selected artists from around the world develop their own unique atmosphere, taking visitors on an unforgettable world trip through art.

The bridge is perfectly completed by a journey of NordArt sculptures to Prague. In cooperation with "Sculpture Line" festival some NordArt sculptures will be on display this summer.

The Kunstwerk Carlshütte is a non-profit cultural initiative of the internationally operating ACO Group and the towns of Büdelsdorf and Rendsburg.

Rounded

Jan Dostál *1992
steel

The sculpture is formulated from a primary round geometric shape, that’s why the name Rounded was chosen. A determining principle of the sculpture is the shape and actual dimension of a circle that appears not only in the resulting shape of the object, but also in its individual components. The sculpture is formed by joining individual parts (carved according to the radius identical to the radius of the resulting object) which form the resulting shape of a growing circle. The overall spatial composition of the work refers to principal mathematical shapes. The purely intuitive composition of individual parts, without using a model, is reflected in an unrestrained, growing and gradually forming whole and this is an unfinished circle. Interruption of a central curve – or perhaps its controlled incompleteness – adds dynamics to the overall impression of the shape of the sculpture.
