Olympic Art Project interprets the figure of speech literally
The sculpture and concept artist Ottmar Hörl will carry ten thousand owls to Athens for the Olympic Games. Art professor from Nuremberg interprets the over 2000-year-old saying by the Greek poet Aristophanes literally. “I want to present a surprising version of this saying in staging something familiar in an unfamiliar way thus creating a creative process” Hörl comments on his art action which he realizes partnered with the DaimlerChrysler Bank.
In Athens, the 30-centimeter high owl sculptures are arranged as one ground sculpture from August 12 through August 29, 2004. In the immediate vicinity of the Olympic Stadium, on the premises of the German School, a 4000 large Owl Grove “comes alive whose structured plan of shape and color turns the five Olympic rings into squares”. In excellent condition.
