Bård Breivik, A Wall Cut Through (1985)

Norwegian sculptor Bård Breivik (1948–2016) worked both with "concrete objects" and sculpture. This particular sculpture is situated on a slope surrounded by trees and forms an entryway to the wooded area. The sculpture is constructed of stones found in the vicinity, using a traditional Western Norwegian dry bricklaying technique. The sculpture was carefully planned in relation to the growth of the surrounding trees. Closely linked with its surroundings, the artwork makes you question where the sculpture starts and nature ends.
