Colin Ardley (*1954, lives in Dresden) moves within the boundary area of

sculpture, architecture and painting. Whilst his complex wall objects of wood and paper

are both fragile and space breaking, for the main market square in Zamość

he created a massive pyramid-like structure which worked with the symmetry

and dimension of the square. For Potsdam, the exhibition's second station

he has dissolved the equal pyramid-form in two symmetrical interconnected

and overlapping triangles which are connected by a wide laid stair

which is situated on a free triangular piece of ground at the end of the

reconstructed town canal. Here as there the sculpture reflects

the structure of the town.
