Goals

Encounter, balance, reflection, confrontation, and nordicity are among the main themes evoked by our sculptural intervention. These narrative axes complement and enrich each other. Each of them has both an individual and a collective scope. The encounter with oneself, the encounter with others, the face-to-face, the search for balance, the confrontation of one's own image, one's own reflection.
