Tightrope Walking Sculptures by Jerzy Kediora

Highly trained acrobats precariously hang in mid-air. While this may sounds like a description for a circus act, it's actually far from it. Poland-born artist Jerzy Kediora (JOTKA) recently showed some of his magnificent sculptors at this year's Kinetica Art Fair in the UK. On a simple strip of wire, his sculptures seem to magically balance themselves, challenging the rules of physics, and surely making those who walk under them slightly unnerved by the experience.

“Balancing Sculptures by JOTKA amuse and attract, but above all, they balance,” says Kinetica Art Fair. “Balancing between horizontal and vertical lines, they blend in with the architectural and interior design and become a part of the municipal scenery.

“The sculptures are not classically beautiful: they are interesting, grotesque and true like circus actors. Their greatest strength lies in this ambiguity.”
