DER KUSS

Der Kuss: Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s famous Kuss, this sculpture explores the relation and integration of human love and nature. As the two figures entwine, so the plants interweave, uniting the sculpture and becoming a part of it. Like the plants, the couple’s love starts from a small seed, grows and blooms, yet is also subject to influence and change from the world.
Aesthetically this work is connected to New York Project, but a step further in transparency
