Built around the structure of a never-ending stairway, this sculpture is made from thousands of tiny geometric pieces. As each fragment is hand-stitched to another, there is a constant element of surprise, as the sculpture naturally bends and grows in unexpected directions along a labyrinthine landscape.
This is an ongoing lifelong art project. In 2015, I began the process of recycling my own art to make more of my own work. I deconstructed my sculpture ‘Plethora’ into thousands of pieces, which were then used to build this new formation, ‘Mountain of Stairs’.
Mountain of Stairs was first displayed in 2016 in Stockholm. When it returned home, new fragments were added to the formation, and the sculpture, after it had grown, was displayed in Copenhagen in 2017.
The underlying concept is to work on a continuously growing sculpture that will be displayed at different stages of its’ existence. Each step of its journey will be documented, allowing us to see how it develops and evolves over time.
