… storey to storey, building to building, street to street – we pass each other on the stairs…
One of my favourite songs of the 80s/90s came to my mind when I walked on by a sculpture in front of our town hall in the center the city where I live. So I linked the official band video on Youtube to the picture I shot on the 6th of October, 2018 *):
Whoever created this video must have been in love with the Weeping Angels seen the first time in the episode „Blink“ of Doctor Who. The stairs on my photo are a part of the sculpture known as „Flamme“ (flame) created 1971 by artist Bernd Rosenheim. The sculpture, resembling indeed a flame, is 5.5 metres in height and has been put together from 160 single pieces of metal.
It is dedicated to victims of the violence: „for the defenseless and resistant, weak and brave victims of the violence – the ones sold down the river“ („den wehrlosen und den widerstehenden, den schwachen und den tapferen, den verratenen und verkauften Opfern der Gewalt“).
