Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

Thanks for sharing the Symposium's official website.

This link below is to the page about the winners and pictures of their sculptures. Unfortunately the pictures are not individually labelled with titles and names of artists which is separately listed. Readers have to guess which is which.

The Winners of 1st Tehran International Sculpture Symposium

Anyway, this one below gets the top prize which is the second prize.



See also the other thread about this Symposium. The last post #20 gives the news about the awards and ceremony.

Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

I would like to know the name of the artist who made it but identification wasn't very clear on that link. Wong..? I think.

Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

Yes, Evaldart, that sculpture is by Marcelo Wong. At the Symposium site, click on 'selected sculptures' and you'll see the selected maquettes shown with the names of artists. Generally the website is not well constructed, with as you said little identification.

See Progression of sculptures to find gradual process of each sculpture. The sculptor from England did not create his because of lack of material; the one and only U.S.A sculptor is not mentioned and perhaps did not participate. Can any one find out his outcome. He has two entries on this site under the name of Thomas Lindsey.

Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

That sculpture reminds me of the story about the Tate museum rejecting a figurative sculpture but accepting for display a rather plain pedestal that was sent seperately to serve as its base. They thought that the pedestal was meant as a free-standing sculpture.

This one looks like packaging that was made to protect from damge during shipment, a delicate sculpture that could be inside.

Perhaps the artist was inspired by the "success" of the tate gallery pedestal.

Re: 1st Tehran Symposium

It is educational for others, including myself, to see the day to day progress of the stone carving work.

This link Mistery, is to another series of photos of sculptor Marvorino Luca at work at the Symposium, carving his sculpture shown below.
