• Skateable Sculptures by Rich Holland
  • Posted 30 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 11987 Views
  • As part of an exhibition named "At First We Take Museums" at the Kiasma Museum of Modern Art in Finland, artist Rich Holland has created incredible (especially if you're a skateboarder) skateable sculptures which combine visual pleasure with physical pleasure. By positioning these structures, which the average person wouldn't look at twice in a skatepark, in a gallery, Holland is challenging the position between highbrow art and urban popular subculture.

    "He focuses on the issue about the right to public space, fiercely debated in Finland too, that is gradually being occupied by commercial and other private bodies. The exhibition and particularly the his work brings the outdoors indoors."

    • it's amazing but it's not current: I'm pretty sure this was on in 2007 or even 2006. It's not up now for sure.

    • Pretty sure that the artist group known as Simparch did an indoor structure for skateboards back in 2000.
