Cake, 2000

wood, 300 x 300 x 90 cm

production: Lahden Taiteilijaseura, Lahti, Finland

Sculpture CAKE was made out of the boards found in the city of Lahti, Finland, in 2000. After the invitation to participate in the exhibition of the sculptures in the public space, the author wanted to create a work which would be a part of the city life. Therefore, the Cake, aside from being a minimalist sculpture made as a collage of multicolored boards thrown by the citizens of Lahtia, it is also a stage on the one of the main city squares where people can act, sing, drive a skateboard, or rest. Trash esthetics of this sculpture is in contrast to a smart city ambient of Finland.
