Kari Caven

Sculpture, found materials

Kari Cavén lives in Helsinki yet spends his summers on the island of Korpo. Cavén is well known in particular for his use of found and recycled materials in his artworks. For CAA he is creating a new work, which turns a large stone into a natural lighthouse of a kind. A boulder left by the Ice Age on its place along the Archipelago Road will thus reflect its surroundings, the flows of people and the changing seasons.

The work follows the daily commute passing by it along the road on the island of Nagu.
