21 figures cast in bronze look out over the river Gudbrandsdalslågen from a field near the medieval farm Sygard Grytting in the municipality of Sør-Fron, Norway. Visitors to the farm might expect to see a herd of sheep grazing but see instead a group of tall elegant bodies.
The figures have glass eyes. They appear relatively similar, but at the same time different. They form a group and each one is unique. Dæhlin hopes that the figures will spark our curiosity and set in motion our thought processes.
- Displaying art in unconventional ways and in unexpected locations encourages a new way of interpreting both the art and our surroundings, says Dæhlin
Dæhlin is known for creating sculptures that are rich in color and textural effect, both expressive and suggestive. FLOKK was made in Mexico. The figures were molded in clay with steel reinforcement. Wax castings were produced from the clay figures. Finally the sculptures were cast in bronze. Upon completion they were shipped to Sør-Fron where they currently stand looking out over the landscape and the river Gudbrandsdalslågen.
