Kuperjanov

Competition

The inspiration for this installation came from the era when the building was constructed in 1919 and from the earthy and hilly landform that is just in front of the building itself. The object symbolizes the last journey of Julius Kuperjanov whose name the street now carries and who was a hero of the War of the Independence. The installation itself is a fragment of a railway, which had an important role in the particular battle and that shaped the destiny of Julius Kuperjanov and the result of the war. The cuts and disruption in the motive allude to the six hours of which the train was late to depart from the Sangaste sation and the six hours that became fatal to Julius Kuperjanov.
