Tron, Ellen Ehk Åkesson (2019)


Title: Tron
Artist: Ellen Ehk Åkesson
Year of installation: 2019
Location: Bryggvägen, Gröndal
Client: Stockholm konst
Idea and execution: The throne, made out of bronze, is placed about two meters from the shoreline, turned towards the water. Along the water where the artwork is placed willows grow. The gnarly trunks and visible roots enhances the mystical feeling of the work and frames it, without interrupting the view. Climbing over the throne are multiple stag beetles, creating a connection to the placement of the work, a core area for oak trees.
