Forloren Form

2017, Vigeland Museum, Oslo

Clay, plaster, steel and ceramics

For the Sculpture Biennial, 2017, Marte Johnslien created an installation based on Gustav Vigeland’s sculpture technique called lost form/forloren form. The two materials plaster and steel have a destructive influence on each other, and this installation is an investigation of these processes. The installation was presented on Gustav Vigeland’s own sculpture stands in the Vigeland Museum.
