The artwork «Self-defined Horizon» was created during the 2nd Art Symposium (1990), the theme of which was «A New Mediterranean Cultural Identity»
Through his sculpture, visual artist Costas Varotsos (born 1955) emphasises the directly visible space, the shape, and the content in order to broaden the aesthetic experience of the viewer without any descriptive mood. “Self-Defined Horizon” (1990) is an excellent example of Varotso’s sculptural practice, which centres around the use of glass, a material which represents light. Varotsos approaches the earth, the sky, and the sea with a great strength of freedom in works for the public space. The viewer faces a puzzle without any enigmatic concepts, as he is invited to view the landscape in dialogue with the sculpture. Thus, the dreamy mood and aesthetic integration both become the core of the project.
