Sculpture by Norwegian artist Tone Vigeland unveiled 17th August
Tone Vigeland (b. 1939) has been a notable figure in Norwegian art since the late 1950s, and her jewellery has placed her in the front rank of Norwegian artisans. Vigeland has enriched the sculpture park with a work that is beautiful, simple and complex all at the same time. A form which in its interplay with the observer is in perpetual motion.
Pierre Huyghe "Variants" opened 12th July
As the 50th artwork to be included in the park, a site-specific new commission by French artist Pierre Huyghe (b. 1962, Paris) was opened on the 12th of June. The vast permanent work will be the artist's largest site-specific work to date and the most ambitious to ever be conceived for Kistefos.
