In the spring of 2006 FOAM/ArtRadius and Saksala ArtRadius have organized the second sculpture symposium - this time based on the theme HOMO ERECTUS.

The oldest findings of Homo erectus are known from east Africa, and are about 1.8 million years old. During the next 1.5 million years, Homo erectus spread to north Africa, Europe and Asia. Homo erectus was the first member of the human family to use fire.

Towards the end of the twentieth century figurative art had not yet fully recaptured its terrain. But around the turn of the century a growing number of artists have again taken up using the human figure in their work. Any interpretation or allusion to the human figure or humanity as a whole is possible.

This catalog shows the process of the symposium, the work of the sculptors and the integration of the art works in landscape, climate and light.

This book also gives a very vivid report of the symposium as it took place at Saksala ArtRadius. It is a must for every artist who ever participated in a sculpture symposium.
