Name: Drakkar-Leviathan, 2016 Place: Norway, Finnmark, Vardø Size: length 28.5 m; height 6.5 m; width 6 m. Authors: Taibola Assemble (Russia) Art concept:Vardø is an island lying in the Barents Sea. Just 100 years ago this town was a heart of Russian-Norwegian trade, important sea port, fishing and whale hunting base, in early Middle ages it was an outpost for Normans. Vikings crossed borders and mixed with other ethnic groups setting their rule. They were like Bible sea monster Leviathan for conquered territories. Buildings on Vardø Island (before destruction during WWII) were built of timber and driftwood brought by sea from Russia. Members of Taibola Assemble were born in Arkhangelsk, sister-city of Vardø. To build the sculpture we crossed the border line and used planks left from old ruined town buildings as a construction material. Drakkar-Leviathan is a story about the sea, about people migration, myths, ships, historical events, wood and whales. It is an anthem to the Arctic, nature and human.
