If you can’t read Swedish like me, Google translate tells me that the article title says, “Abstract Flower Arrangements Will Spread Joy”. The local newspaper, the Mariestads Tidningen, sent reporters out to meet me a few times during the installation process. The photo on the right is in the workshop space I was loaned to assemble the sculptures and I was captured mid sentence explaining the piece to the reporter. The photo on the right is onsite in Humle Plats (Hops Garden) immediately after the installation was finished. I’m pretty excited to of been given the opportunity to install these Umbel Sculptures permanently and I really hope that they do bring joy to the community of Mariestad.
