Primary Structure
Wanås Foundation 2011
Material: painted steel
Size: 10 × 10 × 2,7 meter

This work consists of 104 parts made with 18 colours mounted on a foundation measuring 10,5 x 10,5 meters. It is installed in nature, making it very visible in the woodland terrain. The sculpture looks like it is made of oversized toy building blocks, although some parts defy gravity as they hover over the ground. “Primary Structure” is in fact an endless sculpture; the different parts seem to be engaged in a constructivist ballet. The whole structure is in fact based on a rectangular shape of specific dimensions – 27,5 x 27,5 x 110 cm. This shape is then repeated. The simplicity of the basic idea isn’t visible in the finished sculpture, on the contrary – the large colourful playground come sculpture looks like a geometrical riddle.
