about the artist
fotografia - Magdalena Abakanowicz i Agora
"Agora" 106 iron cast figures, each  about  9 feet tall, shell  like, frozen  in walking movement. They are permanently displayed  in Chicago Grant Park along the Michigan Av. and  Roosevelt Rd. The figures  are similar in general shape, but different in details. Models for each  figure  were made by hand, by myself and my three assistants. The surfaces of figures  are like a tree bark  or wrinkled face  expressing a different individuality of each sculpture. The figures were  cast during two years 2004-2006 in the huge industrial foundry  in Srem  near city of Poznan (Poland). Then transported to USA. The installation took  place in October /November 2006.
