MEDUSA – FLIPPAT

Gustav Adolfs Torg, Malmö, November 2008.The pneumatic structure MEDUSA has been designed to provide the main venue for the five day festival ‘flippat’, organized by the City of Malmö for young people. The MEDUSA is a mobile sculpture, that engages with the subjects of privacy and publicity, as well as with the mutation, utilization and function of urban space. Throughout the course of ‘flippat’, the MEDUSA is placed in Gustav Adolfs Torg, downtown Malmö. As a stranger it occupies and disturbs habitual relationships and connections. Generally this kind of installation has the possibility to adapt itself to the different environments and context, even including features of the landscape (i.e. a tree, a column etc.) inside its middle-core the MEDUSA structure is blending with its surroundings.
