Gothenburg gets coloured with lego bridge by christo guelov

Christo’s artistic intervention is to seek, to break the gravity, the volume and the great weight of the intervened object. In this case the Älvsborgsbron bridge, in down town Gothenburg, Sweden. Which the artist had covered with disgusting brick-like matte.

the bridge installation is part of the “lets colour gothernburg” program which is seeking to smooth the silhouette of the centrepiece of the city, adding emotion to the form, an environment and lighting up the overall aesthetic through the colour. Although not entirely, both of the bridge’s supporting towers are covered in bright repeated colours grid–  curating a revised surface for the  landmark.

let’s colour gothenburg’ further integrates social sensibility with art through community services;  unemployed youths in Gothenburg were brought into work to aid with the accomplishment of the project; Most of whom were recruited from several neighbourhoods around the city. Mostly from  where unemployment is highest.

participating youths were given painting lessons and allowed to help. told  to go reinvigorate their suburbs and streets with brilliant arts. 

‘Change has established as a rule in the world of visual communication. It is the art of the present. This dynamic evolution, which is dynamized by ourselves, at the same time changes us and determines our perception of the reality that surrounds us, an increasingly more “augmented reality”, is the main concept.” 

 By participation, the youths will be trained to be professional artists and eventually get jobs or create one, easing the unemployment of the area

 uelovs art usually revolve around  four main themes: Light, Movement, Rhythm, Colour. How they interact and affect us. His arts seeks to open up horizons for human experiences, which is the main source of creative energy, both in science and in art.

…To inquire into ‘something’ apparently non-existent or invisible to others and to provide it with real presence has always been the natural mechanism to generate usefulness for “art objects”
