This study aims to seek a sustainable form of Public Art in the political space. It considers the process of highlighting the central place of ideology connected with public art as method of communicating and harmonizing in a historical sanctuary closed with a single ideology. For this purpose, I analyze the relation between space and object and the purpose of site-specific art, new genre public art, and works of relational aesthetics.
The alternative form of new public art derived from the analysis can be evaluated by four constituents: preemption of symbolic place, site-specificity with de-site-specificity, non-exhibited reproducibility, and reclaiming visibility. The new direction of public art will be able to overcome the division between art and society through the prevention of institutionalization with the function of authority in the place. The negative public view of public art projects; may also be solved from the cultural administration’s indiscreet city planning.
This paper examines the sustainable direction and frame of public art by occupying the symbolic place: regulating the geographical relationship between sculpture and place to restore the vitality of the public. The establishment of a system in which the visual sculpture and standardized place drawing a dialectical consensus should be sought from this theoretical process.
