CITIES - sculptures and land art


I proposed to situate my sculpture Gothic on the top of a chalk cliff near the town of Witterda, Germany. The sculpture was purchased by the German city of Erfurt after having been exhibited in the exhibition Kunst in der Landschaft, in Fahner Höhen in Witterda. After the exhibition it was to be placed permanently on the cliff. But since the county boundaries changed so that Witterda became part of Gotha instead of Erfurt, this would not be possible anymore. A new location would have to be found, and the sculpture was installed in a city park in Erfurt.
