The 21-year-old wood sculptor Lara Lehmann wins the competition to design and make a column! The thematic brief for the competition was “Double helix. The human DNA”. This motif was to be questioned, associated, thought about further, changed and artistically worked on. The Munich-born artist, now a student at the Vocational School for Wood Sculpture in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, dealt with this task from the point of view of evolution. Her design “Tangled Disentanglements” shows two chimpanzees hanging from vines. They represent both the strands of the helix structure and the natural and spiritual nature of the human being.
The costs for the production, transport and installation of the column are borne by a column sponsor together with the STOA169 Foundation.
