A contemporary exhibition of sculpture by Romanian artist Liviu Mocan comes to Cambridge this summer. Commissioned by the Jubilee Centre in Cambridge, an organisation offering a faith-based perspective on contemporary issues, the Archetypes exhibition examines themes including belief, destiny, transcendence, sacrifice and revelation. The sculptures will spend two weeks in Cluj, Romania, before being unveiled outside Great St Mary’s Church in late July.
All the sculptures are made of brass, and Mocan has created them using techniques including computer-assisted design, 3D printing, laser and water jet cutting. The works range in height from 1.3 metres to an enormous 5.4 metres, with the smallest weighing 200g and the largest more than one tonne. The installation will be free to view, and will remain in Cambridge until December.
