2018年,由法国艺术家Xavier Veilhan的装置“Vårberg巨人”被选为斯德哥尔摩Vårberg艺术大赛的获奖作品。该作品由Veilhan和他长期合作的布景设计师Alexis Bertrand共同完成,是斯德哥尔摩市历史上规模最大的艺术作品和艺术投资项目。经过两年的制作,这两座针对场地设计的雕塑于2020年10月17日正式在斯德哥尔摩西南郊Vårberg区的两块草地上正式揭幕。

In 2018, Xavier Veilhan’s project Vårbergs Jättar (The Vårberg Giants) was selected by a jury as the winning proposal for the Vårberg Art Competition organized by Stockholm konst and the Stockholm City Executive Office. The work, which he co-signs with Alexis Bertrand, scenographer and longtime collaborator, is the largest work of art in the history of the city of Stockholm and its biggest artistic investment. After two years of production, the site-specific sculptures were inaugurated on October 17, 2020, in Stråkparken and Pelousen, two meadows in the borough of Vårberg, a southwest suburb of Stockholm.

两个巨人
THE GIANTS

躺在Pelousen草坪上的巨人名为Pelousens,长19米,宽9米,高度为5米。这是一个长着胡子的巨人,但是并不像格列佛游记里的巨人那样骇人。他可以被看作是某个Pelousen居民的放大版,只是安静地在草地上休息。

Pelousens jätte (the Pelousen giant) is 19 meters long, 9 meters large and 5 meters high. The lying figure is a bearded giant without the threatening characteristics of a Gulliver: he is the enlargement of a potential Pelousen resident, resting in the grass.

这座雕塑是由85个预制的自立式蓝色混凝土体块构成。这些体块的基座尺寸大部分为98.5×98.5平方厘米,但高度有所不同。一系列立方体块唤起了一种强烈的数字维度,仿佛一个由混凝土像素构成的、巨大的俄罗斯方块游戏。雕塑的内部核心由基座独立的灰色混凝土立柱构成。巨人的身下出现了一个小型的平台:它为公众们提供了活动和创造的场地。

The artwork is constructed by an in-situ assembly of 85 prefabricated self-standing blocks made of blue concrete with the color pigmented in the mass. Most of the blocks have a 98,5 x 98,5 cm base and a variable height. These cubic bricks strongly evoke a digital dimension, like concrete voxels, a giant Tetris game. The sculpture has an internal core of basic independent gray concrete columns. A small platform appears on his bust: a stage for the public that encourages activity and creativity.

另一个巨人名为Stråkparkens,她的一半身体从Stråkparken草坪的斜坡浮现出来,两只手臂的姿势使她看上去犹如坐在桌前。这这座雕塑高3米,是由5个预制的自立式蓝色混凝土体块构成,环绕在其外部的是一个30厘米宽的混凝土圆环——像呼啦圈一样,它一方面传达着运动的概念,另一方面也可以作为一个开放的舞台使用。

Stråkparkens jätte (the Stråkparken giant) appears in the middle of the large slope on Stråkparken. This female bust emerges from the ground, resting her arms as if sitting at a table. The work is 3 meters high and, just like the first sculpture, built by the in-situ assembly of 5 prefabricated self-standing blue concrete blocks. A 30 cm wide ring made of the same material surrounds her. This concrete circle, a sort of hula-hoop, suggests the idea of movement and was designed as an open stage.

两个巨人向人们展示出完全开放的姿态,它们可以被用作长椅、桌子、集会场地或者游乐场:雕塑的形式和场地的实际体验之间形成了一种互动;两个分开的巨人就像是存在于城市中的两座岛屿。

The two giant bodies are fully accessible to the public. They can be used as a bench, a table, a meeting place or a playground: an interaction is created between the representation and the actual experience of the site; two islands in an urban environment.

颜色
THE COLOR

Xavier Veilhan和Alexis Bertrand选择将雕塑中的每一个横向和纵向体块染成浅蓝色,在反映天空的色彩的同时,也让雕塑能够从四季的景色中跳脱出来:不论是冬天的白雪还是春天的绿草,随着光线的变化,它们将呈现出不同的形态。

Xavier Veilhan and Alexis Bertrand chose to color each of the horizontal and sculpted shapes of the works in a light blue. This shade reflects the color of the sky; it will stand out from the snow in the winter, from the green grass in springtime and from the dry grass during the rest of the year. As the light changes, during the day and during the year, different shapes appear.

3D捕捉技术
THE 3D CAPTURE TECHNIQUE

借助3D捕捉技术,Xavier Veilhan邀请他的好友和几位公众人物为他摆出一些造型,并将他们的形象融入到雕塑当中。由3D扫描器生成的点云构成了被描述人物的数字副本,随后再被用于实际作品的构思,最终完成这个从真人变化为抽象物体的过程。

Thanks to 3D capture techniques, Xavier Veilhan has both close friends and public figures posing for him in order to create their portrait in sculpture. The 3D scanners generate point clouds that construct an identical digital copy of the person. This computer file is then used to conceive the actual piece: a portrait ranging from realistic to abstract.
