The idea behind the project is that the artworks are not just placed randomly somewhere, but they are the place itself. The art in the collection represents the full width in sculpture art, from the early 60's up until now.
The artwork representing Kulturlandskap i Nordland (Artscape in Nordland county) is created based upon the idea of the American sculptor Robert Smithson.
His vision - "site-specific sculpture" - with focus on the physical significance of the place, led to a new understanding of sculpture art, as he meant that you cannot fully understant the work of art without being in its context.
