Vågen (The Wave)

by Jonas Lilja

Location: Esperantoplatsen
Material: Sheet metal, heat treated wood, peat
Measures: 4,4x2,8m

Esperantoplatsen and its surrounding architectural elements have guided me in my understanding for this specific space. The history of the site speaks about the development of the society. My piece is a moment captured in the stories from our time. Movement and future reflected in form and composition.

Rolled flat bars create the framework to the standing steel sheet constructions and the vertical weed beds. Folded sheets filled with gravel create the foundation of the sculpture and offers you a place to sit.
