Dal 21 giugno al 7 ottobre Firenze celebra Fritz Koenig (Würzburg 20 giugno 1924 - Landshut 22 febbraio 2017), uno fra i più importanti scultori del ventesimo secolo, con una grande mostra monografica, la prima dopo la sua morte, presentando nei magnifici spazi verdi del #GiardinodiBoboli e nelle sale degli #Uffizi una grande quantità di sue opere, fra sculture e disegni, compresi anche, per la prima volta, i lavori degli ultimi quarant’anni della sua vita. L’amore e l’eros fra i temi dominanti del suo lavoro, come pure la morte, gli epitaffi, l’Olocausto. Dopo l’11 settembre, #FritzKoenig si era dedicato al restauro di una delle sue opere più note: la grande cariatide sferica di New York, conosciuta nel linguaggio popolare come “The Sphere” si trovava dal 1973 nella Plaza, tra i due grattacieli, specchiata su una superficie d’acqua, ruotando in maniera quasi impercettibile. In quel luogo era diventata simbolo di incontro. Fortemente danneggiata, ma non distrutta, #TheSphere ora si trova a #GroundZero, luogo di memoria e rinascita.

🌎E N G: From 21 June to 7 October 2018 Florence will be celebrating Fritz Koenig (Würzburg 20 June 1924 – Landshut 22 February 2017 ) - an artist many critics consider as the most important sculptor of the 20th century - in a one-man retrospective, the first exhibition of his works since his death. The exhibition will be hosting a large number of his works between sculptures and drawings in the gorgeous frame of the #BoboliGardens and across the rooms of the Uffizi, including, for the very first time, works from the last 40 years of his life. Love and eroticism have been among the recurring subjects of his career along with death, epitaphs and the Holocaust. After September 11, Koenig was engaged in restoring one of his most popular artworks: the great spherical Caryatid in New York, popularly known as The Sphere, located from1973 between two 400-metre-high skyscrapers in the Plaza, where it had become a symbol of cultural exchange. Miraculously saved from disaster, The Sphere was damaged though not seriously. Today it is still at Ground Zero representing a symbol of memory and rebirth.

The Sphere by Fritz Koenig. It used to be in the middle of the World Trade Center plaza and is now back again on the redeveloped site. It now takes on the look of a human profile. #thesphere #sphere #fritzkoenig #fritzkoenigsphere #bnwphotography #bnw #blackandwhite #monochrome #manhattan #nyc #brookfieldplace

“Poseidon” (1963-64) by Fritz Koenig. Selected sculpture works of the German artist are currently on display at 16th century Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Ghost) in Landshut, Bavaria. If Fritz Koenig’s name is ringing a bell with you - his sculpture “Sphere” in front of the WTC towers was damaged in the 9/11 attacks and is now on display at Liberty Park, New York City. #art #modernart #fritzkoenig #poseidon #horse #gothic #blur #bokeh #sculpture #church #history #landshut #bavaria #germany #madewithiphone #portraitmode

Какая-то стрёмная статуя в #Liberty-парке. Не потому что страшная внешне, а потому что есть в ней что-то отталкивающее и нарушающее гармонию.

Господи, только сейчас прочитала... Иначе за километр обошла бы...
⠀⠀
"Созданный Ф.Кёнигом бронзовый памятник «Сфера» в Нью-Йорке был сильно повреждён во время терактов 11 сентября 2001 года, но сохранился. Во внутренней части разорванной позолоченной «сферы» были — кроме прочего — обнаружены обломки погибших в тот день самолётов."

Тогда видео с воронками слёз, возле которых тоже случайно оказалась, сюда выложу. Грустно от этой истории, до сих пор.

The Iconic Sphere Sculpture by Fritz Koenig that sat between the two towers before 9/11, has a permanent home in Liberty Park overlooking the memorials☝🏼

It is a great spot in NYC to sit and reflect in quiet with a beautiful view of the Freedom Tower.
I just happened upon this spot yesterday afternoon, purely by chance.

This sphere symbolizes so much.
It survived and stayed in tact despite the horrible tragedy. After many years of being relocated several times, it now sits in its new and permanent home as a symbol of “rebirth”. The Sphere does not look exactly like it did before 9/11.
It has been damaged and lost its original perfect shiny appearance but it has survived because of its will to start anew.

This is life, a series of events whether good or bad, that shape who we become. Hopefully, like the sphere, we survive, we learn, we grow and become wiser, stronger and more resilient because of it.
And we start anew over and over again.
🙏🏼✨🎖️🔮🌇🏢❤️🌈

The Sphere sculpture (1971) by Fritz Koenig was originally located on the plaza of the WTC and recovered amidst the rubble following the 9/11 attacks. It now sits in memory to the WTC victims across the 9/11 memorial where the twin towers once stood 🇺🇸 ❤️

The Sphere stood between the twin towers before the attack. Now, transferred back to its original location, scarred and damaged but astonishingly survived, the sculpture carrying lots of sad memories has become the symbol of peace. The sculptor died in 2017 knowing that his artwork would return to the Liberty Park, where it belongs, however, he did not live to see the day.
