In the world of art, there are numerous installations that are stunning. Through them, the talent of the sculptors can be clearly seen. Even you might have come across many such fabulous installations. But have you seen these amazing melting sculptures?
These sculptures done by Urs Fischer, a Swiss artist are incredible. They seem like usual sculptures when looked at but when you look carefully you’ll find that they are not usual. These amazing sculptures first came into talk in 2011 after they were installed in Venice Biennale. Again recently they have come to talk and scroll to know about it.

Now they are installed in Bourse de Commerce, a museum in Paris ventured by Pinault Collection. This sculpture is a recreation of the Abduction of the Sabine Women of Giambologna. The sculpture is now in the building that was renovated by Tadao Ando, a Japanese artist.
Around the sculpture are some chairs and an onlooker who looks curious. It is said that the onlooker is Rudolf Stingel, an artist and a friend of Urs. About the seats that are around the sculpture, the installation had said that they are symbols of contemporary globalization and that they represent the inter-continental trade and commerce in the 19th century.
The candles are lit at the beginning and would last until the wick is there. The melting of the sculptures is incredible to see and you would be able to see them until the 31st of December 2021. Have a look at the sculpture and do leave a comment on what you think about this incredible creation.
