Sculpture that I have formed through an open and explorative making process engaged in the forest, trees and wood as a relational material to become with.

The 19-meter-long sculpture got its form and is carried up by stubs that was standing on the site. They are holding up a beam made of recycled wood coming from a Kunstarena’s nearby neighbor, Sven.
The masonry wall is made out of windfallen trees laying in the forest around the sculpture and a mortar made out of clay, sand, horse feces, straw and sawdust; Materials that I have been gathering from the surrounding landscape.
The metal frames are recycled material from Kunstarena and the neighbor Ole-Erik.
Some moments in the building process were done with great help from:
Beam (building): Sebastian Østlie
Beam (splitting logs): Sven Grønstad
Metal plates (”roof”): Morten Gran
