Artist: Rolf Hartung (Cologne)

Painter and sculptor, gallery owner

Object: The step

Symbolizes here, in the sense of the artist, spiritual and material change and, of course, movement. Whether Corona, the climate catastrophe or world hunger. It needs a big step in the right direction.

Concrete shows the current solidification (therefore without a head) and the shape of the figure has a bit of similarity with the curvature of the wooden pile, because we are part of nature and must never forget this.

Location: Kierspe-Rönsahl, Strandbadweg (Coordinates: 51.108870, 7.519282)

Additional information: The historic building of the Ölmühle Rönsahl can be reached on foot (along the marked hiking trails). The hiking trail "Along the Wipper to the Lingesetalsperre" passes by here.

In the course of the project Scheuerpfähle fürs Volmetal, 20 artistically designed barn poles will be erected 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, Building 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.
