Realization for the Symposium of Predaia 2020:
The sculpture created by Daniela has the title “Vital support” (orig. “Lebensstütze”).
Powerful yet sensitive, strengthening and debilitating at the same time, infinite beauty combined with destruction and decay.
The nature that surrounds us humans in every possible situation manifests itself in different facets, in relation to how we treat them.
It offers us the necessary means of subsistence, source of food, protection, living space and relaxation, but still too rarely do we appreciate this unique gift, over-exploited, ready to destroy this natural wonder piece by piece.
Everyone should treat her with respect, empathy and foresight.
A peaceful and caring coexistence instead of exploitation and destruction.
Nature can undoubtedly live without us humans, but vice versa it is not possible.
So we should acknowledge it, appreciate it and gratefully preserve it as “life support”.
The “Life Support” sculpture should make it clear that this is possible, so that nature helps us to develop and shape all our beauty and uniqueness, every living being belongs to her.
