Per Kristian Nygård - The Economy of Form

Overview

Per Kristian Nygård's (b. 1979) exhibition in the Vigeland Museum has been given the titleThe Economy of Form. As the title suggests, Nygård's project explores the relationship between economy and form, and how financial considerations contribute to determining the premises for shaping our surroundings. At the same time he is preoccupied with the monument as idea. The Vigeland Museum was originally Gustav Vigeland's (1869–1943) workshop and studio, and stands today as a monument over the sculptor. The neoclassical building was erected during the 1920s using costly materials; oak, bronze and marble. Inside this iconic building, Nygård has created another monument, a triumphal arch.

Triumphal arches were traditionally erected in marble, with elaborate sculptural decorations. Nygård's arch is built with lightweight aggregate blocks. These blocks are a rather cheap, prefabricated product and are normally concealed with concrete plaster or by being built into an outer construction. While many of Nygård's previous installations are characterised by being almost seductively beautiful – what we encounter here is a grey wall. It's as though he wants to distance himself from the sensual quality we find in the earlier works – while at the same time still wishing to provoke a physical reaction. How does the viewer experience this wall? What does it feel like?
