Deadline: 15th of May 2010
A town in Italy organises the 27th International Outdoor Wood sculpture Symposium, which will take place from the 20th to the 27th August 2010. The sculptors will be placed in suggestive areas of the town centre, inside the pedestrian area.
To each sculptor will be assigned either a
a. a trunk of Weimurth pine (dimensions: height 130 cm. – diameter 40/50 cm) or
b. a panel of Weimurth pine (dimensions: 120x80x10 cm.) – The organisation will not provide holdings for the panels. The supplied wood will have to be used at its best by the artist. The artists can express their preference on the form: A for trunk, B for panel. The organisation will supply 12 trunks and 8 panels, therefore the organisation could eventually change the artist’s choice by extraction.
The organisation will provide electricity, but no tools.
The sculptors will be given free accommodation and meals (full board) .
The organisation will not pay any travelling costs to the sculptors.
One work will be chosen and kept by the Town Administration, the sculptor of this work will get the lump sum of € 1.937,00. This work will become property of the Town Administration. The other sculptors will keep their work.
