ARCHIPELAGO - BUILDING FROM G

Project: 2017

 

Archipelago is a commissioned project for Le Frac Centre, Val de Loire and will be part of the museum´s permanent collection.

 

Building from G
There must have been dreams of Fear and Freedom,
and a need to be in control
The cave and the cardinal directions
To be constructed in welded steel plates,
glass and stone

 

 

Grette Åsmundsson


Åsmundsson (880-1050) withdrew to the Drangey Island in the North Atlantic Ocean, presumably in 1045, after being outlawed for arson. Anyone could kill him without legal penalty and it was forbidden to help him in any way. He was murdered on Drangey Island in 1050.
