Sculpture in Pilane is a wonderful area placed in the nature; you walk by your own up and down the hills finding interesting sculpture placed in the nature, you walking among sheep’s and other visitors… a lovely experience if the weather is with you.
Pilane attracted almost 200 000 visitors during 2007-2009!
Jitish Kallat, the international acclaimed Indian artist is right now at his studio in Mumbai completing a sculpture exclusively for Pilane called when will you... The sculpture is 30 metres long and will arrive by sea at Pilane hopefully in time for the opening.
The Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdottir's artwork embodies human figures in iron and aluminum that gather around the ancient stone circles of Pilane. The British artist Laura Ford brings a series of charming heartbroken and sullen girls in bronze, called Weeping Girls.
The prominent world artist Tony Cragg from UK has greatly contributed to making Pilane into an art event of high International standards and this year he is back in Pilane with astounding new sculptures. Also joining with an installation of golden stumps is the Swedish artist Nils Ramhøj from Gothenburg known for his brilliant Pictures of a father. Ursula Von Ryding from USA, the Swedish artists Leo Pettersson and Jonas Holmquist partake for the second year in a row.
