Nothing more permanent than the temporary

Nothing more permanent than the temporary

2018

Steel, galvanized steel pipe, concrete

2000x3150x100 mm


Nothing more permanent than the temporary is inspired by the old railroad Västra Centralbanan and the impact it had on the community and the area for nearly 90 years.

Built between 1903-1906 and active during the most part of the 1900’s the final decision to close it down for being unprofitable was made in the late 1980’s.

In the post-industrial era that followed, the old railroad tracks were removed and the railroad beds were kept and transformed into a paved road intended for recreation and leisure.

The installation is a contemporary reflection on the theme of public space and site specific art, connecting the urban and the rural by using a well-known cultural reference such as the billboard.

Instead of promoting a negative mental climate aimed at consumerism, the words on the board are from a poem by A.E Stallings.

Reflecting on time, past and present.
