Colossus which is collapsing

Egor Zigura , from Aftertoday

2015


Description

The sharp vertical posture of this sculpture that is perceived not in its size, but in the shapely silhouette, gracefully emits an unbroken static of an archaic image but with the twist of the artist’s modern interpretation of the figure. The dimensional “pauses” of the silhouette fill the artwork with a sense of antiquity.
