The Austrian Cultural Forum New Delhi could win the Indian sculptor Brajesh VERMAN for a cooperation under the title “CONFLUENCE”. As part of the project, the artist will create a black marble sculpture based on works by Austrian sculptors, which will focus on the perception of Austria in India and artistically combine features of both countries. The sculpture is scheduled to be completed by the end of June 2021.
Since due to the strong increase of the COVID numbers in India as well as the associated restrictions of the public life live cultural events are not possible at present, with the creation of a sculpture by an individual artist a project was brought into being, which takes into account the COVID protection measures.
After completion and after the crisis has subsided, the sculpture will be placed in a publicly accessible place and in this way remind passers-by Austria.
