IMAGES OF MAN

Every community is marked by personalities that enrich and enhance its cultural and intellectual nature.
In times of growing individualization, the memory of those who gave a fresh impetus to a community become particularly valuable. The project "Images of Man" shall take several years. It revolves around the three-dimensional representation of human beings, and yet it expands this term, so it can ultimately be interpreted freely,
using the means of expression of contemporary art. The works become memorials, symbols of man, and yet they consciously challenge the classical representation of individuals.
The project "Images of Man" spreads along the bank of the Passer river, in an intimate, green, and serene part of Merano. It is intended as an open-air gallery, fringed by these memorials.

The project Images of Man shall enrich Merano for a long time, giving impetus and closing memory gaps.
Moreover, it shall motivate future generations to regard Merano and its surroundings as a cultural melting pot and to further develop it. In this context, art becomes a preserver of cultural memory.
