The 25 th International Sculpture Symposium in Menet en France took place from the 5th to the 15th of July 2016. The theme was “Erotism” and the selected sculptors were Svilen Kostadinov from Bulgaria, Semen Zhokhov and Glebos Tkachenko from Russia, Jean-Noel Rifler and Aurelie Moreau from France and myself from Austria.
The stone we worked with was ‘Trachyt”, a very special vulcanic rock mined in this area, the so called Massif Central de France, where more than 80 volcanoes existed millions of years ago. All the houses there were built of this stone in former times and are now rebuild and bring to live again history in Menet!
