Portrait of a sculptor


Copper sculptures representing human figures performing an apparently impossible balancing act on the top of a very tall pole of carbon fibres. They are functioning as a logo and eye catcher for many events throughout the UN Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014). The project was launched during a UN conference in India by our co-operator Lars Myrthu-Nielsen from the Danish Eco-network.

Eleven copper sculptures of 10 year old girls in natural size, inspired by the tale of Hans Christian Andersen. The girls hold a bundle of matches in one hand – a mobile phone in the other. The sculptures made a tour through Denmark in connection with the municipal elections to highlight children’s living conditions in 2005.

The project was carried out in co-operation with the Educationists’ Association, BUPL.


to denounce the unethical investments

of Belgian banks, November 2005

In the Belgian city Ghent an eight metre high biblical Golden Calf coated with 24-carat gold foil took the lead in a procession of artists, the Clown Army, samba dancers and citizens.

Belgian campaigner Mathias Bienstman said: One can see the Golden Calf as a symbol of the idolatry of return and profit. The sculpture will call the banks to account. Why our savings go to weapons, dictators, sweatshops and other unethical investments?
