Falling Apples, 2015
Falling Apples, Hegg School, Lier, Norway, 2015
Bigert & Bergström completes a new public commission for the Hegg school in Lier, Norway. The project titled “Falling Apples,” consists of a group of hanging large apples made of stainless steel. Parts of the apples are polished to a mirror that reflects an altered image of the viewer. They are fixed mid-air in different stages of their fall, and on their way down through the central atrium of the school the apples looses more and more of their physicality.
The apple on the floor is almost completely consumed as it is transformed into a social sculpture on which the visitors can sit down and relax.
The project is made in collaboration with the city of Lier and KORO Norway.
