„The memory of big fishes”: huge, fluctuant contemporary installation on the Danube

Visualization of the sculpture composition „The memory of big fishes"

This summer is launched by the Municipality of the City of Budapest with a huge contemporary art installation that is floating on the Danube: the winning artwork of the Danube installation tender - launched in March - was completed. The title of the sculpture composition done by Zsófia Farkas is „The memory of big fishes”.

The winning artwork is a three-piece sculpture composition, which will be floating on the water surface of the Danube. The artwork, which marks the importance of unity and nature is well-matched to the capital's image, yet it is an eye-catching and novel, since it is analyzing and goes beyond the mystical ancient connection of the human being and the fish.

The cultural installation, which will be set up on the water surface at the front of the quay of the University of Technology is expected to be a new dash of colour of the Danube-bank of Buda from the end of June. With the tender the aim of the Municipality of the City of Budapest and the Pro Cultura Urbis Public Benefit Foundation is to raise the attention that we must appreciate the role of art works around us and the community, cultural, connecting and functional power of the Danube, which defines the unique face of Budapest.
