I'm intrigued by this statue every time I visit the garden. I never knew it's name until today. Called Zerogee or Zero-G for Zero Gravity which the sculptor is trying to depict.

Collection of Ray Granlund, USA.

I wanted to go photograph rapids, so early in the morning I opened a map and searched for a location that was not too far from where I live.

 

I found a place called Alikoski in Porvoo, which seemed like good location for some photography.

I only took a quick look at the map, so I had no idea what else I would find other than a river and some rapids.

 

Well, it turned out there were remnants of some old buildings and structures all around the rapids.

I wandered around trying to figure out what used to be there, what was now in shambles.

 

I took a long exposure photograph of a small part of the rapids and an old stone structure in the background, still not knowing what I was looking at.

All I knew was that the structure was most likely built in the 1890's.

 

There was no way I could cross the river from there without getting wet, so I backtracked a bit and crossed the river using an abandoned looking railway bridge, that was a bit upstream but very close to the structures.

 

I got to the structure in this photograph, and it started to look like a hydroelectric plant, because there was a chamber there that looked like it housed two turbines.

 

There was not much else around that I could find that would tell me what the place actually was, so when I came home I started researching.

 

Turns out there were two mills operating there in the 1890's, and the stone structures I saw were just a small part of them.

There might have even been a hydroelectric plant there later, but I wasn't able to verify that.

 

I also found out that further upstream there is supposed to be more remnants like this, old dams, old mills, power plants and so on. Definitely going to visit the other sites too.

 

Here's a picture of the mills taken by John Granlund back in the day.

Encompassing the area around the Minnesota Arboretum's High Point along Three Mile Drive, is the new sculpture garden and home to the Harrison Sculpture Collection, comprising 22 works (plus three arriving in the future) by such internationally acclaimed contemporary artists as Mimmo Paladino, Paul Granlund, Rene Kung, George Rickey and Barbara Hepworth, among others.

 

Looking into the Wind a sculpture by artists Nicholas Mukomberanwa and Son. The acclaimed African artist Mukomberanwa credited his childhood spent in a rural environment "surrounded by mountains and rivers with places full of trees" as the fundamental influence on his work. His work is characterized by sharp lines and hard planes used with confidence alongside sweeping curves and deeply etched surfaces. Springstone is a type of serpentine found in Zimbabwe.

 

For the Young (and Young at Heart) Look into the wind. How might the wind "carve" shapes into you? What would the shapes look like? Do you see these shapes in this work? (Info from the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum website.)

Roy and Ruth Granlund were the children of Peter Granlund (1860-1952) and Laura L. Akers (1865-1944). Roy was born on 27 June 1888 in Blue Earth County, Minnesota and Ruth was born in March 1899 in Blue Earth. In 1900, Roy and Ruth were living on a farm with their parents in Lincoln, Blue Earth, Minnesota. In 1905, Roy was listed in a directory as a laborer. In the 1910 census, the siblings were living with their parents in Garden City, Blue Earth; Peter Granlund was a rural mail carrier and Roy was a brakeman for the railroad. Ruth was working as a teacher in 1919, and in the 1920 census was boarding with a family in Rapidan, Blue Earth; I lost track of her after that. Roy was working on the Isaac Nelson farm, located in Orwell, Otter Tail, Minnesota, in 1920. At some point, Roy married an Ann L. (last name unknown, 1901-1949), and the couple would have at least two sons. In the 1940 census, the couple and their two sons were living in Lake Crystal, Blue Earth, where Roy ran a painting and decorating business, and Ann was a seamstress. Roy had several different jobs in his life: farmer laborer, waiter, salesman, coffee roaster, brakeman, and painting contractor. By 1941, Roy and his wife had relocated to Tacoma, Washington, and in a 1960 directory Roy was listed as a painting contractor. Roy Granlund passed away in April 1967.

 

Photographer John R. Snow was born on 13 August 1868 in New Brunswick, Canada, the son of clergyman Rufus Snow (born circa 1838) and Caroline Nevins (or Nevers, 1833-1913). The family came to the United States circa 1876 and settled in Maine, living in Jonesboro, Maine for the 1880 census. The family relocated to Wisconsin and John R. Snow’s first work experience was as an assistant superintendent of a lumber company in northern Wisconsin. He began his photography career around 1885 in Zumbrota, Minnesota. He then worked as a traveling photographer in Illinois and Kentucky, before operating a gallery for his brother in Fort Dodge, Iowa. John remained in Fort Dodge for three years and met his future wife Margaret Hower (born June 1874) there; the couple married around 1892 and would have one son, Cecil Snow, who followed his father into the photography business. Margaret was also listed in the 1910 and 1930 censuses as working as a photographer. Sometime in the early 1890‘s Snow bought the gallery of S.E. Blake in Mankato, Blue Earth, Minnesota. John and Margaret would remain in Mankato for the remainder of their lives. Snow’s photography gallery was still open in 1955, although it was Cecil Snow who operated it. John R. Snow passed away circa 1956 in Mankato.

The title is derived from "Zero-G" for a gravity-free condition, as suggested by the joyous whirling of the family group. The bronzes were cast by the lost-wax process.

I was looking at Viva Granlund's paintings on the wall, wishing someone would show up to pose for me. Wishful thinking, indeed. Suddenly, out of nowhere, they walked right into my picture.

 

Two young girls, Sanna & Sanna, 20 & 22 y/o, friends & cousins.

 

We had a short chat. I wondered whether they had a family member named Sanna, as far as they knew, the answer was no, they didn't think so anyway.

 

I told them about my photo project, they told me a bit about themselves and they gladly posed for me :-)

 

As usual, I've already sent them the photos.

 

Thank you so much, girls !

Tjörns kommuns senast införskaffade offentliga konstverk är en skulptur i aluminium föreställande skjortor i ett nät som vilar på fyra stående trädstammar.

 

Skulptören heter Linn Granlund, en ung konstnär nu verksam i Berlin. Linn tycker om att flytta existerande fenomen till ett nytt sammanhang, att göra historiska objekt i nutida material och därmed skapa nya tolkningsmöjligheter.

 

– När jag skapar, modellerar och gjuter ser jag det som en historisk process. Arbetarskjortor, fiskegarn, trädstammar transformeras till nutid – i aluminium.

 

Som en hyllning till kvinnorna som skötte hem och familj på egen hand när fäder och män var på sjön står nu Hulda och blickar ut mot havet.

 

Varje år avsätts medel från Tjörns kommuns budget till konst i offentlig miljö.
