Kilometre of Sculpture 2015 Võru
This year Andreas Nilsson saw Kilometre of Sculpture and the town of Võru as an opportunity to explore the notion of an exhibition in the context of the social fabric of a community, and the materiality or lack of it in contemporary conceptions of sculpture. The 18 artists invited to exhibit in The Visitors all tend to explore in different ways the social and political structures we inhabit in our daily existence.
I'm fascinated by the thought, that what does it look like the things we cant see. The soul of the city. The passage of time.
For my participation of this years Km of Sculpture I suspended a white cloth in the town of Voru during the period of the exhibition. The fabric was completely unaltered when set up - as a white sheet to be filled with content. As a tabula rasa. I wanted the city to make a mark on the fabric and become a painting through time, people's eventual intervention, wind and weather. As a child born as a blank slate written in the child's upbringing, the painting changed over time.
