Statues are everywhere in Europe. There is no exception in Zalaegerszeg, although it is a small town. There are 207 pieces around the place; small to big, traditional and a few of contemporary statues. Most of them are famous people from the old days, such as King, noble, poet, politician, symbolic person etc., and mainly are male. They all look very serious as usual as classic statue. The notion of the project is to break the seriousness and traditionalist of classic statue, in order to give the subject matter a new perspective with a bit of humour. Meanwhile, a female soft statue is made according to one of the sculptures called ‘The leave knees’. Since, the lady of the sculpture Lily is a deservedly popular statue there were more copies made and one of them is seated in the Zalaegerszeg as well. So, the soft sculpture is duplicated according to her feature in contemporary way. Thru site specific she interacts with other selected male statues with different composition in the public area.
Moreover, same statues in a different scene and circumstances are emerged in painting, to further change the perspective and meaning of the statue. Using appropriation to suggest a surreal, ironic and a play around with the stereotype.
