Thanks to the well-considered spot and the form which resembles a gate, the audience can contemplate the sculpture both from the inside and from the outside. The additional footbridge makes the island accessible for the pedestrians.
The curvature of the sculpture is adjusted to the pathway which links both exits from the island. The construction allows to aim the eyesight of the pedestrians to the selected landscapes, revealing and blotting out numerous perspectives.
Bionic shapes establish the impression that the sculpture grows straight from the ground. Simultaneously, the construction based on the arches relates to the monuments nearby: The Ossolineum, The church’s tower at Piasek, Wrocław Market Hall and Ostrów Tumski.
Daliowa Island, rebuilt after World War II, was a meeting place.
Slow but constant process of degradation and the flood in 1997 made the citizens abandon and forget about the island.
Making Daliowa Island a transitory meeting point with the distinctive NAWA sculpture and lush greenery trigger connotations with wilderness.
