Artist Rich Holland presented his Skateable Sculptures in Finland and in doing so, his sculptures became the world’s first large scale skateable sculptural installation. Holland’s work can serve as both works of art all by themselves, but should you get the itch to shred, they’re entirely skateable. If anything, that could add a bit more detail and character to the pieces.
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.
