Charlotte Gyllenhammar

Out, 2004
Bronze, 95 x 42 x 25 cm

The child is a returning motif in several of Charlotte Gyllenhammar’s installations and in connection with that a new view on children and childhood are brought forward in our surroundings. A normal view on children are innocent, natural, exposed and in need of protection. In the sculpture “Out” we meet a child that is out, outside and left out.
