Description

The Artscape Nordland is an international art collection, which includes 33 pieces of art in as many municipalities. The Artscape Nordland arose in the period between 1992 – 1998, when artists all over the world made a contribution to this special art collection. All pieces of art have been placed outside, in the wild and beautiful landscape Nordland – an art gallery without walls or a roof but with a ground area of 40.000 km2. – And with a distance of more than 500 km between the nothernmost and the southernmost pieces of art!

„Eye in stone“ is the name of the sculpture, situated in the village of Lodingen. It is the product of a collaboration between the artist Anish Kapoor and Lodingen stone industry. The scultpure, a large block of stone, made of the 180 million year old Lodingen-monzonite (a granite), can be found in the mudflats at Hustad Farm, at a distance of approx. 15 km from the Vacation Centre Offersoy. At high tide the sea rises and fills up half of the polished space of the sculpture with water.
