The Vessel Project Part II - Fafnir



28.0m x 4.0m x 4.0m

Art Line, Tamagawa / Japan

The second installation of the "Vessel Projects” uses elements of the first version in a different arrangement. Placed in the Denenchofu Seseragi Park in Tokyo the installation remains open on one side, making it possible to enter and see the inside via some wooden steps. Fafnir is a character in norse mythology and the Icelandic Volsunga Saga, a mighty dwarf who transformed himself into a serpent or dragon to guard his treasure of cursed gold. Venturing into the wilderness to keep his fortune safe, Fáfnir breathed poison into the land around him so no one would go near him and his treasure, wreaking terror in the people's hearts.
