The latest art project by Ivars Drulle includes planting hundreds of flowers in ruins of an abandoned building. However, this is an unusual step by a classically trained sculptor, who once thought that in the quest of creating flowy shapes, he started to rival Mother Nature itself. The story is about the sudden discovery and the long lasting impact it had on the artist.
Ivars sees his work as a form of story-telling. The themes include controversial topics from our recent past and subjects we try to avoid publicly but discuss in our kitchens. Most of his projects are either large scale or tiny miniatures and maquettes, often incorporating elements of sound. But don’t misjudge the playful, toy-like figurines of his creations, they reach much deeper than it might seem. “We don’t really know who we are and who we may become” could be the essence of his research of the human soul.
