Heinz Mack | The Sky Over Nine Columns
A unique journey | Valencia
After the notable and impressive presentations in Venice (2014), followed by Istanbul (2015/2016), the monumental installation The Sky Over Nine Columns by Heinz Mack will be on view in Valencia at Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències (City of Arts and Sciences) until November 2016. The contrast between Santiago Calatravas bright white and futuristic archticture and the lucid, golden steles by Heinz Mack is becoming the crucial point of the presentation at this new location.
The journey of this exceptional large-scale sculpture to unique places all over the world is a long-term art project, planned and realized by the Ralph Dommermuth Stiftung Kunst und Kultur in cooperation with Beck & Eggeling International Fine Art. St. Moritz, Athens, Tel Aviv, Chicago, Qatar and Sydney are in discussion as further locations.
The festive grand opening took place on 24 June 2016 in presence of the artist. The unveiling of the nine steles was accompanied by a concert of the Berklee School Valencia. The exhibition is curated by Kosme de Barañano.
