|One of the more confusing
efforts in the skulpturlandskap project; excellent signposting from
the main road which suddenly stops as you arrive at the end of a
dirt track with no obvious location for the sculpture. I start
by photographing what turned out to be the remnants of a WWII gun
emplacement, confusingly similar to one of the actual (deliberate)
Flakstad. I treat it as though it were a sculpture and, as
far as I was concerned it was a sculpture, not requiring any art
critic to label it as such or otherwise. The first rows of
images are of this "sculpture".
checking my crib sheet I discover that the "real" sculpture is a
rather ingenious head which appears to invert as you walk around it.
I asked a passing German hiker if she had seen it: "it is 800 metres
that way". Not "about a kilometre", but "800 metres"!
How very Germanic and precise. I turned a corner to find a
sign pointing to the sculpture, clearly marked "800 metres".
