Le cours de l’eau, la cour et l’eau #2 Karl Hallberg

For some days, Karl gathers driftwood from the shores of the river Aveyron. He wanders around and selects carefully different pieces he collects, without knowing at first what it would become. He is invited by the art center to create a sculpture, made from as found objects. He has this handy knowledge of ancient assemblage he performs while the team and the participants fuss around with the heavy noise of machines. On the contrary, Karl is quiet. He has his hands and simple tools. His structure grows. It takes shape. It stands. It could have stand alone, as a manifesto for careful observation and handcraft in a busy world. Until the end, they didn’t know what it would become, nor where it would integrate to the space of the courtyard. But hey, it fits there! Karl decided to integrate the group, and so did its sculpture, becoming the missing piece for water to flow.

(Thank you Karl!)
