Honor

Tatiana Trouvé
Årets Skulptør 2024

Tatiana Trouvé has been named 2024’s Sculptor of the Year by Kistefos in Jevnaker, Norway. Every year, the chosen artist is invited to create a site-specific work to be permanently installed in the museum’s sculpture park. Trouvé’s two Kistefos sculptures are part of her Guardian series (2013–), which symbolize fictional characters who guard different places and life forms. The artist created the works in response to the former wood pulp mill in which they will be installed—keeping not only the landscape and local animal life in mind, but also the building’s industrial history and the people who have shaped it into the institution it is today. The work will be unveiled on May 4, in conjunction with the opening of the 2024 season, and is the fifty-third commission in the collection.
