Traversatorie (2018)
Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall

Traversatorie(2018), is a 150m long 12m tall landscape-installation made of steel, wood, glass and concrete. The project is driven by ideas of the vernacular; in-situ timeless objects that through narratives establish connections to the surroundings without resorting to imitation. The structural steel used in the project is a natural choice, manifestating the iron ore that was extracted from the mines during the last 400 years. The choice of structural steel does not only resonate with the cultural history narrative, but also, more directly, with the landscape's color palette with natural occurences of iron ore in the indigenous rock. The shape and design of the project responds to the landscape by echoing spaces and directions found in the topography. In a geological time-frame the project can also be seen as a re-deposition of iron into the mines.
