. Работы испанского скульптора Жауме Пленса #JaumePlensa установлены на постоянной основе в самых прогрессивных городах мира. “Possibilities” нашла свой дом в Сеуле рядом со знаменитой Лоттэ Тауэр. Эта внушительных размеров работа выставлена на обозрение общественности, насладиться ей может любой желающий, в соответствии с замыслом автора. Фигура сидящего человека состоит полностью из металлических букв: именно текст придаёт мыслям и идеям материальную форму. По замыслу Жауме Пленса наряду с любованием скульптурой издалека, созерцатель может изучить её изнутри, войдя в ажурное окружение букв и погрузиться в мир знаний и света. «Когда кто-нибудь входит внутрь, то он наполняет скульптуру душой. Моя работа не завершена, пока она пуста внутри» – утверждает автор. . . «Много слов на земле. Есть дневные слова – В них весеннего неба сквозит синева. Есть ночные слова, о которых мы днем Вспоминаем с улыбкой и сладким стыдом. Есть слова – словно раны, слова – словно суд,- С ними в плен не сдаются и в плен не берут. Словом можно убить, словом можно спасти, Словом можно полки за собой повести. Словом можно продать, и предать, и купить, Слово можно в разящий свинец перелить.» . Вадим Шефнер . . . . . #люблюпутешествия#путешествиямоястрасть#путешествиепомиру#нашипутешествия#красотавокругнас😍
