Lots to discover: cool concepts from the Far North

skulptur includes exceptional work by seventeen contemporary sculptors from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden who were selected by the Royal British Society of Sculptors, London. From performance to object-based, video, and installation, their work embraces all aspects of the sculptural and challenges notions of the Nordic in its refreshing diversity. While Elmgreen & Dragset provocatively hold up a mirror to Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid, Sigurður Guðjónsson creates immersive sound and video installations of the vast, barren Icelandic landscapes and seascapes, and Swedish artist Michael Johansson gives the façade of the historic Royal British Society of Sculptors a ‘facelift,’ while Norwegian performance artist Karianne Stensland uses a pneumatic drill to carve marble while in a hypnotic state. Also included are essays on contemporary sculptural practice from each of the five countries.

The participating artists: Nanna Abell, Jacob Dahlgren, Elmgreen & Dragset, Sigurður Guðjónsson, Marianne Hall, Timo Heino, Michael Johansson, Otto Karvonen, Tove Kjellmark, Anne Koskinen, Mariken Kramer, Maija Närhinen, Gudrun Nielsen, Laila Pullinen, Karianne Stensland, Hartmut Stockter, Jarno Vesala.
