Girevik is a fresh creation featuring one man and thirty kettlebells weighing over three hundred kilograms. On a special floor of nine square meters the artist labours to put the cast-iron bodies in motion in order to transform their configuration. Through lifting and manipulating kettlebells, dominated by their weight, he builds new constellations and sculptures again and again. The work celebrates strength as a quality, and comments on the ever-changing relationship between artist and object, in stark contrast to classical “strongman feats”. The audience is offered a unique visual experience through a slowly unfolding three-dimensional composition.
