Site-specific artwork
Park Arena, Värnamo, Sweden
Commissioned by Värnamo municipality
Completed 2023

MOTIO (Latin) means motion, body movement, to start, to exercise.

The artwork comprises three groups of figures displayed on each wall. Each group represents bodies in motion, performing a sport: football, basketball and running.  These figures, crafted from metal mesh, are transparent forms that evoke the sensation of movement.  Painted in vibrant, sparkling colors that contrast with the subtle facade, the figures create a dynamic visual effect. When the shapes overlap, the colors blend, adding an additional layer of interest. From a distance, the artwork casts interesting shadows, enhancing its visual appeal.

Photographer: Robin Hayes
