Unveiling of the Invitation/Decalogue Sculpture

Decalog-vernisaj1

Dear friends,
We have had a hectic and exciting week…. Liviu, the sculptor, flew in to Geneva last Friday, ahead of the sculpture itself which arrived on Monday.  We spent the whole day putting it up in the Parc des Bastions, and then Tuesday and Wednesday were spent laying the grass turf all around it, and preparing for the unveiling.  We worked rather slowly, as we had many interruptions from people stopping to ask what it was… we saw all kinds of expressions on people’s faces: amazement, surprise, bemusement, wonder, as well as puzzlement, disdain and indifference!  Liviu was in his element as he engaged in conversation with people.  He intends to remain here for the month of July, and will spend much of that time in the park, talking with people who stop to consider the sculpture.

Liviu Mocan

dragii mei,

am nespusa bucurie de a va impartasi faptul ca grupul statuar “decalog” a luat contur final. multumesc Datatorului si va multumesc voua tuturor, prietenii mei dragi

in confuzia valorica infuzata in contemporaneitate de catre relativismul postmodern, nadejdea acestei lucrari de arta este aceea de a afirma ca ABSOLUTELE SUNT MAINILE LUI DUMNEZEU

The Invitation – Dialogue with the Decalogue – UPDATE!

Invitation - Decalogue

Dear friends,

We are very pleased to announce that the Geneva authorities have given their approval for the [Liviu Mocan] sculpture to be exhibited in the main Parc des Bastions during the month of July, so we are due to install it on 29th-30th June, as part of the Calvin09 celebrations.

Meanwhile in Romania, the casting of the ten columns in fibreglass is under way even as I write, and Liviu is very pleased with the progress so far. The other main piece of the sculpture, a broad metal base ring which will lie flat on the ground and provide the support for each column, will be made towards the end of this month.
