After months of fruitful work and preparation, on May 7th sculptor Richard Serra finally presented his "Walk" project. It includes an artistic series of giant monuments that were erected in the Parisian Grand Palais.
Having seen a series of these monuments for the first time, you will not understand why they were erected. There are no inscriptions on them, drawings and reliefs - too. In total, five of them were erected. Whether this figure has any meaning or not - we do not know. Each of the five parts is 14 meters high, 4 wide and 13 cm thick.
The author of this, if I may say so, works of art believes that this attitude "challenges our established perception of equilibrium and gravity." Probably, walking between the rows of huge steel blocks, we must come to some kind of philosophical conclusions. Indeed, sometimes even things that do not look interesting and attractive outwardly are capable of evoking more emotions in us than brightly decorated paintings or sculptures.
I think the "Walk" just calls us to this.
The show will run until June 15th.
