New Art Suites are created in all year round open ICEHOTEL
October 4, 2017
It’s time to change sections of the art in the year-round open part of ICEHOTEL, for the first time ever. Invited to create art suites out of ice and snow are the artists Nina Hedman and Lena Kriström as well as designer Franziska Agrawal, amongst others.
— Ten months have passed since the year-round part of the hotel opened and now it’s time to let three of the art suites at ICEHOTEL melt back into Torne River. Three new art suites will be presented at ICEHOTEL during the month of October.
In the Deluxe Suite ”34 meters” the architect and support manager for the artists at ICEHOTEL, Luca Roncoroni, together with Dave Ruane create multiple rooms in the room with help of several walls. They master this by building 34 meters of wall in one single art suite with 32 tons of ice and 5 tons of snow.
”Danger Thin Ice”
The designer Franziska Agrawal from Germany creates the Art Suite ”Danger Thin Ice”. Visitors literally walk on thin ice in this frozen sea landscape and a bridge runs through the Art Suite and connects with the bed.
”The Invisible (Invincible) Army”
Artists Lena Kriström and Nina Hedman create the Deluxe Suite ”The Invisible (Invincible) Army”, which consists of a female army with ten women. They are each made with unique expressions, but everyone got a purse. The artwork gets its inspiration from the Terracotta army in China, Hans Runesson’s picture ”The lady with the purse” and Monty Python’s women.
