Moose in post-formulated state, 2009

Sculpture in plastic, 300cm x 400cm x 120cm

Contact Regarding Availability

Just as in previous work I relate this to my parents for the articulation of a third and previously unknown position. The moose is seen as a symbol of the Nordic countries and the camel as a representative of the Arab world. The sculpture was named the winner in the contest Rondell 2009 on the grounds that it was seen as symbolic to an area of constant change. The hybrid has in this case been made the representative of an encounter between cultures and of various aims to highlight the link between design and innovation in the Telefonplan area in Stockholm, Sweden. The sculpture was implemented in 2009 on behalf of the City of Stockholm, Vasakronan, Ramboll, JM, Stena Property, HSB, and SSM.
