was in touch with some of the artist. This made new connections come thru,
which gave ideas to more artist. The invited artists strolled arounnd the
idyllic landscape surrounding the Lockne-lake and were thus inspired to
create a site-specific
piece of art. Either as a sculpture or as land-art,
that the visitors were toattend and experience. Children and youth in the
Lockne-area have created works of art in "Logen", which they will
place in the landscape. The sculptures that they made last year are also
left, since they wanted to leave them.

Petersson's art-piece Sorgfrid "contains of
several works in a a clearing in Espnäs skulpturpark. My thoughts
about the work were that it would alleviate for the soul and heart.
When I found the old stove in the location I put its former function
contrathe loss of it in the clearing. Estetically it gave me fantasies
of an altar, thereafter Icontributed a telephone which makes a signal
to the universe and a spiritual link. Thru the telephone you can relieve
your heart of worries and let the forset take care of your agonies.
Like a parkway the white plastic ribbons show the way in the forest,
where some chairs are placed as a place for rest and devotion. The
work is framed by four handsome pine in the forest, which are to give

the dadaist Marcel Duchamp exhibited the work Fontain(1917)
in an American gallery. He took a common urinal, turned it
90° so that the prime function of it was annihilated.
Thereafter he signed it cryptically R. Mutt. By this work
he challenged how we percieve art. To him and to everone else
who can't help them self but rethinking Idedicate this work.
Like Duchamp I use an existing object (ready made)
and give it a new context. As a cascade a mountain-ash grows

been nature made something new may emerge. In the eye of the

is a Buddhist symbol for balance and
harmony. I choose to show it as growing sunflowers, since
growing can also bring balance and harmony to both the one
who grows, as well as those who dwell in a garden. It is also
something that was formerly used a lot in the psychiatric
care. The patients felt better from growing and I know that
in for instance the Frösö-clinics almost were self-sufficient
when it came to vegetables once upon a time. That Knowledge
has, like so much else, been forgotten, but prooved to work
very well on eg. patients who suffer from fatigue depression,
who feel so much better when growing rhings. [Due to bad plastic
force the sunflowers did not grow as I had planned for, which
made me paint sunflowers on the rocks in the Dorj instead.]
