CONNECTION by Manfred Wakolbinger
Sammlung Würth, Inv. 14935
The photographer and sculptor Manfred Wakolbinger (*1952) occupies space with his organically-curved objects, which appear as beings from another world. His large-format sculptures made of stainless steel are initially designed on the computer before being executed sculpturally.
For the Salzburg Art Project Wakolbinger chose a site on the Rudolfskai, a quay between the old city wall and the River Salzach, which he conceives as a stage for his approximately 11-metre-long sculpture “Connection”, which references the cultural self-identity of the city of Salzburg.
