Pok Grdisa designed this original urban sculpture in the Tivoli Park as a temporary installation. Luckily they decided to maintain the sculpture to inform visitors of different art installation and museum exhibitions that take part in the park.
Here is the project description:
The new information point in the Tivoli Park in Ljubljana Slovenia is actually result of first Trimo Urban Crash competition in 2007 and was only a temporary installation in a different part of Tivoli Park and demolished after two months. Luckily there was some civil society initiative that saw great opportunity and use for this urban sculpture. New purpose of sculpture is to inform visitors of different art installation and museum exhibitions that take part in the park. There are two museums (International Center of Graphic Arts and National Museum of Contemporary History), Botanical garden and several exhibition places hidden in the Tivoli Park.
It is also a new entrance point to the Tivoli Park and connects Celovska street, Bus parking spaces, sports spaces and the event hall.
Something about the sculpture:
Its an open, clear and structurally dynamic form in a contrasting red color that explores the possibility of motion in the environment, in witch this kind of exploration is needed; at the same time the movement itself is present as a natural environmental process. The idea represents a blooming of a frame though five different phases, a somewhat Calderian approach.
