sculptural group at the military academy in wiener neustadt



The artist plays with forms, varying, structuring, dividing and recombining them systematically. He seeks and finds a mathematical formula, an order and a basic rule appropriate for him. The number 4 has a special significance in this: 4 pillars, 4 Evangelists, 4 seasons, 4 elements, 4 compass points, 4 stages of life... If one were to shift the two sculptural groups into each other then, as can be seen from the sketch, it should result in a total of 9 objects – in order to be complete. In actual fact, there are only 8. It is the intention of the artist to indicate that something is always missing – in a metaphysical sense – in life, nothing is perfect. The search for the missing element is like a search for a lost home, a search for paradise, a search for the Garden of Eden. Because of his nationality, Ljubomir Levacic is directly affected by war. With this work he changes both places and creates an important and unmistakable sign that has the character of a monument. The groups of objects E4 + W4 are however not a traditional monument, indicating things that are long past and part of history, but remind us of what is happening at the moment, at this very time, only a few kilometres away from us. Although only begun recently, this war is already showing the signs for a long history of destruction. Levacic makes a real connection to his own personal history and that of his home country and erects a memorial as a warning to the present-day world.
