Budapest- GIRL FROM BUDA

GIRL FROM BUDA
GIRL FROM BUDA

Girl from Buda, designed specifically for the
location in Budapest, is a 6m high sculpture of
a young girl installed at one of Europe’s most
spectacular locations in front of the historic
Chain Bridge in the city center. It depicts a young
girl walking toward the bridge: Is she coming
back home from a night out in the Pest side of
the city or is she on a catwalk? Throughout art
history, artists try to represent the female form as
a canon of beauty, in the recent past large figured
sculptures have been used as part of political
strategy. Located on the point where Buda, a
calmer and mostly residential side of Budapest,
meets the vibrant and international Pest across
the River Danube, where past is giving way to the
future, this sculpture is a monument to everyday
moments in the lives of young people living in
the city.
