The dancer
For the sculpture the horticultural practice of topiary was used, whereby fast-growing perennial plants are planted in a flowerbed or similar container, with the iron frame of the sculpture positioned on the soil. Once the plants start to grow, their foliage is clipped and trimmed to develop and maintain the shape. The delicate work has a height of 190cm and consists of carefully clipped perennial privet (Ligustrum delavayanum). The dancer stands metaphorically for Merano’s status as a cultural town and is reminiscent of the sculptural depiction of five dancing girls on the roof of the Kurhaus.

Location: on the Passer Promenade, in the central flowerbed at the stairway between corso Libertà and the Passer Promenade
