nimis and arx

(viewed 1859 times)
Bookmark and Share
this huge sculpture was built entirely out of driftwood on the edge of the kullaberg nature reserve in sweden by a well known local artist. the sculpture is called nimis, and sits alongside smaller sculpture arx (last pic). the driftwood has been nailed together to create a complex of towers and corridors that you can walk through and climb up inside, despite the whole thing looking like it could fall apart at any moment. although the sculpture is technically illegal due to safety issues, it is proudly described in all the local guides. the pictures I've taken show only portions of the sculpture.

americanfriend - hehe, I never thought of that. hopefully you're referring to the original and not the remake!

Caine says:

You took the words out of my mouth, Billion! I have the special edition DVD (original) with the director's cut, not the theatrical release. I wouldn't go near that execrable remake.

I'm wit ya homey. the wicker man is one of my fave films and the director's cut is way the best version. I've been known to do the occasional dead-on sgt howie impression...

Hee. Everyone was *so* perfect in that movie.

I loved all the exchanges between Sgt. Howie and Lord Summerisle:

Sgt. Howie: [outraged] But they are... a-are NAKED!
Lord Summerisle: Naturally! It's much too dangerous to jump through fire with their clothes on!

Hee. And Brit Eklund...all of it. That movie is a joy.

caine - oh my. I haven't heard about this. filming in edinburgh?? I'll be looking out for the camera crews...

jun - the holga craze is seriously catching on...

Caine says:

Yep, they're filming now. The not-strictly-a-sequel arrives 36 years later. Christopher Lee is going to be in it. :)

eta: wait, I screwed up - I think they filmed in August.

Billion - you spend your holidays in ways I totally approve of.

And the Wicker Man? Yeah, wonderful film. It has my favourite soundtrack too.

that looks well rickety for walking about in!!! very cool.

billion says:

mscm - you had to look around yourself all the time when walking through because there are nails sticking out everywhere, and some of the wood has cracked or rotted. health and safety officials would have a fit. still it's one of the most extraordinary pieces of art I've seen.
