"Hocker"
by sabine7 / August 27, 2005


Kjell Varvin is a Norwegian sculptor who combines philosophy with sculpture to challenge the viewerís acceptance of his seemingly simple installations. Varvinís latest series of installations takes place in a corner of his studio where they are recorded digitally before he creates new order out of the elements of composition. He sets up the pieces of steel, iron rods and bits of plywood in such a way that they are on the verge of collapse, connecting his work to a very basic human need for control. In arranging objects, we are trying to exercise control and bring order so that the eye may relax and bring the spirit along with it. Varvinís work may look light, but those bits of plywood are heavier than you first thought.
