For the sixth time the Grupo Nuestros Parques organized this year an international sculpture symposium in Santiago, Chile. Several sculptors from all over the world were invited to create a sculpture out of the local stone. These sculptures found their places in the different parks of the organisation in Chile.

Last august I was working again in the triennial international sculpture event in Neustadt, Holstein in Germany. I made a sculpture out of one of the beautiful boulders that can be found in the surroundings of the city.
Again I felt fascinated by these beautiful stones. From the outside they often seem ugly, but inside they hide the most beautiful types of stone. In my sculpture “Der Fluss” the stone shows this kind of beauty.
“Der Fluss” has been placed in the center of the city, close to the harbour.
Up north there is a town called Os. It is situated south of Bergen at the Bjørnefjorden in Norway. Here the daylight stays all night long and the water and the mountains are changing their colors from black to pink and from blue to white. The green winters, as they call these summers up there, are cold but beautiful.

I had the honor to be invited to the Os international sculpture symposium to make a sculpture in Os this year.
For many years the sculptor Arne Maeland together with the people of the Os Kulturutvikling Committee were able to bring sculptors from all over the world to work in Os and it has become a beautiful event that is cherished by the people of this town.
