Klaus Pinter :
Regional Sports School St. Pölten

St. Pölten, 1990 – 2017


The object concerned is a stele with an attachment at the top that reacts with its twisted axis and position to the apartment block running at an angle to the hall.

In the course of reconstruction work of the sports center Lower Austria, the art work was lost.

The angle indicates the main entrance of the hall even from a distance. The stele-like sculpture on its plinth measures 6m in height. The attachment is a partly gilded meandering border. Except for the Perspex rod the sculpture is deliberately black and white with grey tones. The complete sculpture has a signal character deriving from both its position and form.
