Bård Breivik (1948–2016) was one of Norway’s most internationally famous artists. He began his career as a pioneer of conceptual art in his native country, but covered many artistic movements, styles and techniques. Breivik’s works range from small to monumental works, and was recognised internationally mainly for his sculptures. He was a professor of sculpture at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm from 1982 to 1985. Breivik’s practice was always hovering on the boundary between architecture, landscaping and urban planning. In 1995, Breivik was awarded the Prince Eugen Medal for outstanding artistic achievement.
