Bronze sculpture details
"Going" is part of a series that has been realized by the artist in different variations since 2008: Sculptures in human form which also consists of numerous small human figures .
"Going" consists of 980 male and female figures in three different sizes. The effect is impressive as Trpak realizes a topic that usually can only be illustrated in an abstract think tank: He shows the individual as part of a whole, the person as element of a society, which he develops himself and which concurrently forms him. We might proceed as individuals, but "real" progress can only be achieved when humanity unites.
