Special steel statues in Kecskemét

July 08, 2016

Flower petals made of steel plates, oil pastels depicting real equations — these are some of the special artworks the exhibition of the 13th Steel Sculpting and Visual Arts Symposium in Kecskemét opened with. The topic of this year was “Game theory” / “Originality”. The exhibition is free to all until 2 September in Building 12 of the Industrial Park in Kecskemét of the Main Sponsor KÉSZ Group.

As is now a tradition, the 13th Steel Sculpting and Visual Arts Symposium and Art Camp in Kecskemét ended with the exhibition of the artworks created during it. At the same time, the steel sculpting and visual arts exhibition has been opened to the general public as well. The exhibition is free to all until 2 September in Building 12 of the KÉSZ Industrial Park in Kecskemét.
 
“Game theory” / “Originality” – these were the key motives of this year’s art camp. Game Theory deals with situations where the outcome of every decision is subject to the possible choices of the others. Reflecting originality and origin in arts is a provoking idea, as the envisioned artwork may really be something of genuine novelty or just something newish and so only about the forming of already seen things to our own image. Visual artists have now had the chance to give a playful meaning to the theory, while unique and unparalleled artworks were made. So have the artworks “Fénylélek II” (Light Spirit II), “Tavasz” (Spring) and “Minimax” been created.
 
This series of events held since 2004 have received 83 artists from 11 countries, who have created a total number of 624 juried artworks so far. You can read further information about the art camp on the www.acelszobraszat.hu website.
