Marginal Frieze, by Sany (Samuel Nyholm) (1973 Lund); artwork for Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017

Fallande ting, Pyrographic series in the Münster / Marl urban space

Sany’s work Marginal Frieze for the Skulptur Projekte links two different areas. On the one hand, a multi-part mural is being exhibited in the urban space, while, on the other, his cartoons are part of the exhibition’s accompanying advertising campaign: his work is being circulated as film trailers, on banners, bags, flyers, and stickers—as a patchwork of subliminal media fragments with a wide range of influence in the public space. For his Fallande ting Sany is installing large-sized pyrographies on the walls of several buildings in Münster and Marl, showing individual falling figures. For this project he turns to familiar characters from his cosmos of images: with Estrid, the Valkyrie, and Yggdrasil, the World Tree, he re-interprets two figures from Nordic mythology, who are joined by the monkey Apis and the Greek artist Stavros.
