23. De Troende (The Believers)

Sound sculpture, 150x200 cm, Masí stone, concrete & cello, 2011.

The sound resonating through the stones was a 21 minutes cello interpretation of a Qur’an recitation, of surah 23. The sculpture is shaped like a varde (Cairn), witch in Norway are used for navigation. The island was only accessible during ebb. The work was made for Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF), but are a part of a larger project.
