Narrator: Lars Englund’s rhythmic play with space, architecture and sculptural form is sometimes compared to the billowing style of the Baroque. But his art is also related to American 1960s minimalism, exploring modern materials such as rubber, steel, carbon fibre, aluminium and various kinds of plastic, in his non-figurative imagery. Lars Englund elaborates on certain recurring groups of works in his art, and the “Instabile” is one of them. Despite its sturdy anchoring in the bedrock, the sculpture performs a ceaseless dance on the spot. When the wind gets hold of its green wing, that is.
