Last touches before the transport and installation in Örebro
All the pieces are now placed, the inauguration will be on September 15.
Gnosis is a Greek word for knowledge and insight, Cosmogony is the teaching of the world’s origin or creation.
The installation consists of eight stone sculptures with more or less anthropomorphic features loosely based on art history works mixed with pop-cultural elements. The pieces carved in stone from different parts of the world: porphyry and pegmatite from Sweden, serpentinite from Zimbabwe and granite from India and Brazil
The material selection is an important element of the installation, the stone stands for continuity and variation, coming from many different places.
This is a commission for the district of Rinkeby in Stockholm,
A final effort to finish Detrás de los Cerros: A sculpture group for the Nursing Home of Oskarslund, in Karlstad.
I have often preferred to act before thinking and correct my mistakes along the way, but in this piece the error margin had to be kept to a minimum. I was forced to device a method and follow it.
And after many sleepless nights and cold sweats, with the valuable help of many people I managed to finish it, also the weather collaborated: it was only bellow freezing early in the morning.
The entire process is documented here
