‘Spinal I’ is a unique sculpture by the Swedish artist, Mårten Medbo.
Medbo’s vessels and sculptures sometimes resemble items suddenly frozen in the process of organic growth or expansion. He is drawn towards irregularities and idiosyncrasies. The structures seem to be on the verge of breaking free from their inner logic; they loosen up, start to glow mysteriously, or even mutate. Medbo’s pieces fascinate by virtue of their strangeness and physical intensity rather than by beauty or sophistication.
