During my holiday trip along the croatian coast I found some interesting places. Not just abdoned ones like you have seen before.
One of them is the sculpture park close to Vrsar. At first it was like hmm, is it really ment to be, to go inside because it looks very private from the outside. The fence is high and the door is really massive, but still it is open, nobody inside.
So I just went in and found some nice place, a little stonewall to sit on during I ate my water melon. I was pretty tired at that point.
After some additional refreshments I started to look around and did some nice shots around the garden.
The main interesting point of the sculptures is the way they had been buildt. All the metal sculptures I found are mostly figured out of nails and chains, which links had been weld together.
Also the aluminium polyester sculptures seems like a bunch of piece by piece – never ending work.
DUŠAN DŽAMONJA was born 1928 in Strumica, graduated 1951 on the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. 1953 he started to work in his own studio. The construction of the sculture park begun 1970. He died in Zagreb on 14th January 2009.
