An 8 tonne steel sculpture by renowned French contemporary artist Bernar Venet was unveiled in central Budapest on Thursday.
Arcs in Disorder can be viewed in March 15 Square near Elizabeth Bridge. Venet told MTI at the unveiling that he originally planned to display Arcs in southern France, but decided on Budapest instead, given the “prominent” spot on offer. Venet noted that over the past 20 years he had made his steel compositions in partnership with Hungary’s Szalai metal works, adding that several of his works were exhibited in the Budapest Arts Hall in 2012.
The 1 million euro composition was transported to Budapest from Vienna’s Belvedere Palace’s gardens, Viola Lukacs, the curator, noted.
