Invited officially by the City of Petah Tikvah (Tel Aviv), sculptor Angel Orensanz creates an environmental piece fluttering with the wind of the Mediterranean.

Invited officially by the City of Petah Tikvah (Tel Aviv), sculptor Angel Orensanz has accepted a commission to create an environmental piece that is already fluttering with the wind of the Mediterranean. He calls it "Nomadic Sculpture" and tries to capture the transient texture of a land and the peoples who over the millennia have moved through it, East/West and West/East.

The event is taking place on the Sportek plaza at the Sirkin interchange on Arba Artzot Street. of the city of Petah Tikvah, in the outskirts of Tel Aviv.

Angel Orensanz commented on his installation as a series of silk, parallel shapes in vibrant colors that speak about the diversity of languages, cultures, faiths and traditions always making a strong gesture of presence in the region but never establishing a permanent city habitat. Thousands upon thousands of people circle daily the Orensanz piece and accompanying sculptural contributions of more than 200 artists who participate this year in this art festival. The event, a yearly artistic feature in Israel, is joined by the museums and art galleries of the region under the concept of "Passover of Hope".    

The organizer of this annual event is Doron Polak, an international art curator and ardent proponent of a new, world art culture, founder of the Artists Museum, established in Poland, and of the "Stones speak Peace". This last project premiered at the Biennale of Venice of 2001 and has literally moved around the world.
