In the Jøssingfjord is the sculpture “Bivac”
Bivac is a wooden sculpture carved by the Slovakian artists Štefan Papčo. The mountain slope of the Jøssingfjord situated in west Norway, was it’s base.
During a whole year “Bivac”, the sculpture could be seen “live” as a camera was streaming the site ! The sculpture has been moved for restauration.
The art work was not placed between the protected walls of the museum and though the sculpture is precisely carved- you could nearly think it is alive, it was placed out of reach unless you are an alpinist. But still, we, “normal people “could see Bivac, beaten by the westvinds, and changing with time and weather, on our computer, world wide.
Bivac is one of five works which was shown at Štefan Papčo’s personal show in Bratislava in october 2009. Štefan Papčo has participated with this work and shown Bivac on a large screen in Paris in november at the artfair “La jeune création”.
In the Lysefjord, Flørli, is the installation “Tatraversion” also by Štefan Papčo.
The artist built Tatraversion during his stay in Flørli this last summer. You might want to see the work and the awsome site, Flørli, an industrial site established in 1918 for Hydrolic powerplant reason, in the middle of the wilderness, no road but a daily hydrofoil.
