About the Artwork:
"In my work I normally use forms that occur in nature (nests, plants, trees etc.). Lately having used steel wire that is going to rust I have been able to become more ambitious with the scale of my work but also to create a contrast between the use of steel and its fragile, organic look. The shapes should evoke the viewer’s curiosity; invite him/her to explore the different aspects of the work close up.
Part of the challenge with "the guardian" was to create an artwork that is going to belong to a very new environment and at the same time looks as though it has been there for a long time (which is hopefully going to happen after the landscape is going to settle down a bit). I felt that I wanted to create a somewhat organic, natural space in an urban environment - not only a visual but also a spiritual experience". - Brigit Heller
