Skateable Sculptures by Rich Holland
Artist Rich Holland has presented the world’s first large-scale skateable sculptural installation in the form of his Skateable Sculptures at the Kiasma Museum of Modern Art in Finland.
“One of the key artworks is Skateable Sculpture by Rich Holland. His work combines action with aesthetics, physical pleasure with visual pleasure. Sculptures that can be skated on are placed in a challenging position between highbrow art and urban popular subculture. He focuses on the issue about the right to public space, fiercely debated in Finland too, that is gradually being occupied by commercial and other private bodies. The exhibition and particularly the his work brings the outdoors indoors.”
