  • In winter 2008 MARI SHIELDS is one of the artists staying in the residence


     

    During a period of three weeks Mari Shields will stay to work on an ongoing project in Saksala. She has already participate in the symposium 'REDUCTIVE ABSTRACTION, LESS IS MORE AGAIN' in spring 2005.

    In 2007 she has given workshops in the art education symposium 'NATURALLY ART' and start the creating of a sculpture in in the LABYRINTH.

    During her residence period she is continuing the LABYRINTH sculpture.

    Her ideas and vision on the LABYRINTH have a great value for the future of this project.

    During her stay she is also cooperating with Lucien den Arend, the curator of the WOOD/INSTALLATION SYMPOSIUM in the LABYRINTH to prepare this symposium.


     

    In a forest with so many trees it is not easy to chose to complete the sculpture started in summer 2007.
    Working in winter is different than in summer, the days are short and there is snow outside. The corridor in the basement is a good place to peel the trees.


    The longest tree needed help of the farmer to get it from the field. The peeling has to be done outside.
    The period was too short and the weather was not inviting to finish the work this time, but in spring and/or summer Mari Shields will continue.
