Made for The Mind Craft Project 2021, 300kg Beauty Bath represents a shifting point in the collaborative work of Frederik Nystrup-Larsen and Oliver Sundqvist. 300kg Beauty Bath is an exercise in utilising hands-on process in place of any conceptual grounding or meaning. While the piece is finished on top with a small pool in which birds can bath and feed, this function is merely a bi-product of the process of creating the sculptural work. First constructed from polystyrene and tape, this initial cheap and light material is altered when cast in aluminium – the works perceived value, worth and weight receive a total makeover as a result of this transformation.
