'Statue and Object' is the name of the 13th annual event that will feature more than 200 sculptures by Slovak and foreign artists on the streets and squares of Bratislava between June 26 and August 31, the TASR newswire wrote June 9.

Organiser Viktor Hulik expects that the 67 sculptors from 22 countries will include such stars as Poland's Igor Mitoraj and Olbram Zoubek from the Czech Republic. Slovakia will be represented among others by Peter Roller, Milan Lukáč and Erik Binder, with more artists coming from other parts of Europe, such as Italy, France and Great Britain and from even further afield - Israel and Brazil.

A symposium entitled 'L'Art pour la Sante SO-CHA' and an exhibition of sculpture plastics and drawings will be held between August 13 and 31 and on August 17, respectively, as supporting events.
