Igloo Construction I

Sculpture 1,5 x 3 m, peat

The work illustrates a process where thoughts on environmental issues, temporality, construction methods and choice of material are central. The shape of an igloo represents a place and the speculative notions on a specific culture.

The construction that is built out of peat with traditional techniques is a self-supporting structure like a conventional igloo. The function of the structure is removed to mark the symbolic value before the functional.
