Berthold Hörbelt & Wolfgang Winter
On a small islet a short distance from the Nordic Watercolour Museum stands a cylindrical building. The structure is built of mint green mineral water crates from Germany and at night is internally illuminated by spotlights. The small lighthouse shines like a light green emerald in the narrow strait. In the summer, it attracts young crab fishers. During stormy autumn and winter evenings it is beaten by ocean waves. This site-specific sculpture was created by two German artists, Wolfgang Winter and Berthold Hörbelt, who are interested in environmental issues. In their works, they often return to social issues and human responsibility for an exploited natural world.
