Spectacular Sculptural Installation Featuring Over 200 Arrows


Polish artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski has teamed up with German artist Bodo Korsig to create a site-specific installation known as Pfeilschaften, which roughly translates as “Arrow Machinations” in German. The lively installation presents over 200 arrows darted against and through the walls of the exhibition space. Interestingly, there’s a simultaneous outward explosion of arrows and a magnetic epicenter drawing the long, black darts in, resulting in a sculptural sphere known as Morning Star.

The spectacular installation is part of a group exhibition titled gast.freund.schaft at TUFA in Trier, Germany. The show features five German artists, each collaborating with a European artist from another country with the intent of presenting European relations following a “Euro Visions” theme. This particular piece is one that reminds viewers of Fortress Europe, stating: “Europeans love to stay among themselves, indulging in EU regulations and seal themselves together to the outside.” Gast.freund.schaft is currently showing at TUFA through June 9, 2013.
