CITIES - sculptures and land art


Kemijärvi is located in Finnish Lapland. In 1988 I participated in a sculpture symposium in this remote location in Europe. I was impressed by the overwhelming hospitality and unpretentiousness of the people. On a very early Sunday morning walk - the sun had been shining all night - he found this location and imagined a very large open sculpture there - capturing the rays of the sun with its open spaces. He decided to propose to contribute a sculpture, to be made in Finland under his supervision. The town accepted and in 1990 it was unveiled by the minister of culture Marja-Liisa Kasurinen.
