Boštjan Kavčič was born in 1973 in Šempeter pri Gorici. Between 1997 and 2003, he studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, where he later earned a master’s degree in the video department. In 2001, he received the first recognition for his work, the University Prešeren Award. Already during his graduate and postgraduate studies, he was often invited to group exhibitions in Slovenia, Austria, Germany and Italy. After completing their formal education, the intensity of exhibitions and participation in sculpture symposia increased. During this time, the author had the opportunity to erect a series of public sculptures in Slovenia and Croatia. He lives and works in Rodine in Bela krajina.
Kavčič designed floor sculptures of organic shapes for the park along the Lucija canal Fazan. It seems as if its full and wavy form is the result of some earthly natural force, a wave in expansion. But maybe it’s a gust of wind or the statue is a metaphor for a summer atmosphere, as the artist says. His desire was to show the movement of matter, to turn the apparent strength of stone into living, pulsating energy, all with the aim of ennobling a green garden in the middle of a small settlement, which in time could become a kind of locus amoenus, as the ancient Romans would say. for rest and enjoyment.
