Although the application of concrete in the visual arts is not as wide as in the construction industry, it reflects diverse artistic attitudes and expectations regarding this material. We come across its use mostly in public space, being a natural space for concrete. When it comes to small-scale sculptures exhibited in art galleries, concrete is not found that often. Sculpture is a vast field dominated from one hand by traditional materials such as bronze, stone, ceramics, but also open to spatial and material experiments. The articles presents a number of concrete use cases in the creative way: its method, the output, and the conclusions. The aim of the project was to depart from the typical architectural function of concrete and to present it as the flexible one that enables one to take advantage of its expressive features. As a result, a set of works called “The Silence of Forms” was created, which was fully or partially presented in some art exhibitions in the years 2019-2021.
