“Catastrophic road Signs, Sun”
by Fredrik Raddum

Catastrophic road Signs, Sun

The sculpture was a gift from Fredrik Raddum to Kistefos-Museet in 2013. Raddum himself chose the location of the artwork.

Usually, signs are generic. But for me, certain signs tell personal stories. For example, Ca- tastrophic road Signs, Sun: I used to imagine whole families meeting their end. This was in my childhood, when we drove around on our vacation for sightseeing, tours and visits. To sum up, this sign is somewhat of a genuine narrative and comes from these trips. This is a service sign and not a danger sign. Thus, it is transformed. I’ve also added a sun to indicate that it is summer and the family inside the car is on vacation
