Idea Code 19580

Influenced by antiquity, the Middle Ages, Renaissance and – not least – Auguste Rodin, Gustav Vigeland still struck out his own path and broke new ground. With an emotive and dramatic expression his works portray humanity and the different stages of human life. With more than 200 sculptures, the Vigeland Park inside Oslo’s Frogner Park is Gustav Vigeland’s principal accomplishment. Here, visitors encounter the full range of human emotions, from expressions of love and tenderness to darker, erotic, and melancholic aspects. The photographer Yanan Li revisited Vigeland’s work in Stockholm and Oslo.
