Site no. 16

Site no. 16 Site no. 16
This Summer's art exhibition at Haninge Kulturhus in Handen is called Site no. 16. The artist is Gustaf Nordenskiöld. In the show room you can see a lot of sculptures hanging from the roof. His namesake Gustaf E. A. Nordenskiöld was an explorer who worked at a site at Mesa Verde in the US, back in the 1800s. The objects here refer to real or fictive cultures. They look like real tools but the artist have changed their functionality. The objects from the dig in the US back in 1891 can today be found at a museum in Helsinki, Finland.

I like it very much Steffe. The artist has presented beautifully in crisp white against white, tres effective!
