添加时间:2014/2/24 来源:中国雕塑学会

Since the First China·Wuhu Liu Kaiqu Award International Sculpture Exhibition and the opening of Wuhu Sculpture Park, artists contributed for the exhibition have exceeded 1500 from home and abroad, involving 102 countries and regions worldwide. According to the incomplete statistic, Wuhu Sculpture Park has received more than hundred batches visits from local government agencies and investigators, and nearly 3 million visits from all sectors of society by far. Facts have proved that the holding of China • Wuhu Liu Kaiqu Award International Sculpture Exhibition is a milestone in the creation and practice of China’s urban construction and public art, and coordinated development of public life and cultural undertakings in the new era.


Our achievements are inseparable from the coordination and efforts from all parties. First, the continued and strong support of Wuhu Municipal Government for the construction of Sculpture Park laid a solid foundation to build the “World-famous Park” which is held by the three organizers. Second, the organizers, China Sculpture Institute and China Academy of Art as the most authoritative art institutions, have always required high quality of art works and paid great emphasis to it. The academic pursuit of Wuhu Sculpture Park itself is tireless, and for its promotion and international influence Wuhu Sculpture Park has a long-term ambition. We can not only maximize the advantage of extensive collection and the power of collective decision-making, but can also effectively guarantee the works selected for the Park are contemporaneity and representativeness. Finally, the construction of Wuhu Sculpture Park is unique; while having beautiful natural scenery, the specific construction will be in according with the sculptures not necessarily with the environment construction, which makes us have a better implementation and grasp of public art in the future.


Wuhu Sculpture Park not only emphasizes contemporariness, but also pays attention to the classical collection of works; local historical cultural elements are included, but attention also should be paid to avoid the excessive intervention to result folk sculptures. Although the audience to understand some abstract concept art may has passiveness, we will use different forms and contents of sculptures to meet people’s needs of different ages, levels, groups and cultural identity, reflecting sociality, inclusiveness and internationalization, while giving play to “figurative theme” and “figurative concept”, such as water, air, environmental protection and other contents. The key point is how to guide and inspire the mass and make works in the park as a whole to present diversity, contemporariness and an international vision. From the process of public’s acceptance to the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Pyramid, it can be seen the geographical tradition and the classics of the era are dynamic which will change over time, no matter where we are. Insisting the combination of works with surrounding environment will make the existed contemporary sculptures become the future “regional” classical sculptures.


The 36 works selected for this exhibition reflect the new concept and new theme of “Human·Ecology”, and put more emphasis on the combination with history humanities and natural ecology of Wuhu, which will well present the cultural spirit of the development of Wuhu City. When we see people stopping and staring at the Sculpture Park, sitting in front of the sculptures, walking around the park, and showing their smiles after getting aesthetic experience, we firmly believe that all our efforts are worth it. The huge change brought by sculptures going towards the public space makes a wonderful balance between human and natural ecology. The park not only demonstrates open and positive attitude of Wuhu, but also inspires people in the park to live a better life. This is the charm of Wuhu International Sculpture Park!
