美國第一夫人梅蘭妮亞(Melania Trump)的家鄉位處中歐的斯洛維尼亞小鎮塞夫尼察(Sevnica),日前當地豎立了一座梅蘭妮亞的雕像,因其造型特殊引起熱烈討論,稱像「稻草人」、「藍色小精靈」。

 

 

川普當選後爆紅 第一夫人家鄉變景點

 

梅蘭妮亞是美國史上第一位歸化入籍的第一夫人,自川普就職以後,梅蘭妮亞的家鄉成為熱門景點,湧入大量遊客參觀梅蘭妮亞曾經待過的地方,帶動當地觀光。

 

梅蘭妮亞出生的塞夫尼察居民,對出了美國第一夫人感到相當自豪,當地也推出如梅蘭妮亞蛋糕、梅蘭妮亞蜂蜜、梅蘭妮亞拖鞋等周邊商品。木雕一出現後更引起各地遊客朝聖造訪。

 

 

該雕像重現梅蘭妮亞的丈夫、美國總統川普在2017年就職典禮上她的穿著,以一身高雅的淺藍色裙裝配上同色的高跟鞋,雕像將展覽至8月25日。

創作者自信稱「絕對美麗」 重現就職風光

 

《法新社》(AFP)報導,儘管雕像的抽象、不對稱外型,被指一點都不像梅蘭妮亞,創作的39歲的美國藝術家唐尼(Brad Downey)則自信有加,表示:「我可以理解為什麼人們覺得不足以描繪她實際的外表」,但是成果是「絕對美麗的」。

 

《英國廣播電視公司》(BBC)報導,居民對雕像褒貶不一。部分居民稱「很丟臉」;當地24歲的建築系學生尼卡(Nika)表示:「如果這個紀念雕像旨在滑稽地模仿,那這個藝術家很顯然是成功的。」

 

66歲的卡茲那(Kazina)則認為這是一個「好點子」,「梅蘭妮亞是斯洛維尼亞的英雄,她在美國站上頂端」。

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Today we officially opened the “Melania“ (monument) as part of “This Echo” at Vžigalica Galerija. 7. 2019–25. 8.2019——————————————————————- “Melania” 2019, Sevenica, Slovenia Digital video 12:11 min ___________________________________________________ “Brad Downey’s new ongoing project ”Melania” is a documentary film consisting of several parts about the construction of a monument of Melania Trump, carved into a tree that is still rooted in her hometown of Sevnica, Slovenia. The current First Lady of the USA was born on April 26, 1970 in Novo mesto in the then Yugoslav republic of Slovenia. The sculpture of the president’s wife is made by a local pipe layer and amateur chainsaw sculptor named Maxi. Both Maxi and Melania were born on the same year in the same hospital, but their lives have taken drastically different directions. For the film, Downey and his team spent several months filming interviews with Maxi along with locations around the town. The result is a personal portrait of Maxi and his thoughts about Slovenia, the USA, Europe, immigration and class division. Through these interviews the film attempts to capture the spirit of Slovenia, which seems to be mirrored in Maxi’s interactions with his family, environment and his feelings about art, God, love, and country. By focusing on one working class man’s portrayal of a public and internationally known personality, the film offers insights on local and global problems and policies illuminated by the USA and Europe and beyond.” thanks: Aljaž Celarc , Miha and Jaka Erjavec #firstlady #slovenia #sevnica #AljažCelarc #immigration #refugees
