Land Art in Finland
In 1990, at the time of the installation of my opening the Arctic Circle sculpture in Lapland, I exhibited my land art projects on various locations in Finland. This resulted in various magazine articles about my projects. Documentation and some large images of my work were borrowed as study material by the committee which set up the environmental art foundation of Finland.
in 1997 the city of Vaasa contacted me and commissioned me to make proposals for site specific sculpture and land art at the Fisherman's Bay (Onkilahti). These proposal drawings are now in the collection of the Ostrobothnian Museum in Vaasa.
It wasn't until 2008 until I made an environmental project using willows in Lappeenranta. My site specific sculptures in Kemijärvi and Vaasa, as well as my proposal for one in Tampere, are in Finland called environmental art; but the Finnish term ympäristötaide (which translated means environmental art) has severely mutated during the last two decades and is now applied to any sculpture installed in any environment - still pertaining to the outdoors.
