Artist: Roland Glatz-Wieczorek (Gummersbach) - sculptor

Object: the shell

This sculpture deals with the theme of the hidden, the inner core and the process of change.
What is inside? What does the shell of this being hide?
The shell breaks open and something new peels out of it.
What emerges when we shed our old shell?
When we reinvent ourselves and let something new grow?

As part of the project Scheuerpfähle fürs Volmetal, 20 artistically designed barn poles will be installed in the four communities that have joined together to form the region Oben an der Volme. They are to point out special features in the Volme Valley, serve as landmarks or invite reflection. The X 20 hiking trail, which connects Schalksmühle, Halver, Kierspe and Meinerzhagen over a distance of 20 kilometers, is the bracket for the project.

The initiator and sponsor of the project is the VAKT art association from Halver. The NRW Ministry for Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Construction and Equality has sponsored the project. The Minister Ina Scharrenbach personally brought the funding notice to Halver on the Saturday before Christmas 2019.

Rubbing stakes have their origin in agriculture. Farmers put them on the Weide so that cattle could rub against them. In the Volmetal Valley, the stakes are also meant to figuratively indicate points of friction. They should draw attention to special places, stimulate discussion or help to rediscover home.
