László Horváth: Identification

(2013, Handshake Europe Sculpture Park)

“My statue “Identification” was created in 1996 in the Arts Camp of Zalaegerszeg, Hungary supported by the local metallurgy company “Alugépgyár”. The sculpture is made of steel and chrome-steel. Plasma cutting and welding have been applied.

The piece is built on a steel circle. The two forms of the same arc rise from a cogged lower part and are connected by a bright piece of chrome-steel emphasizing the feeling of identification.”

Dimensions of the sculpture: 124x60 cm.
