Aluminium sculpture outside Umeå City Church, depicting a child sitting on a brick wall, wearing shorts, a t-shirt, a cap, rubber boots and a diver’s mask.

“I want to show the child’s unrestrained curiosity and urge for exploration, which I find as a very important skill seen from a existential perspective to lead us home and forward,” says the artist Mikael Åberg.

Mikael Åberg, Umeå, mostly does sculptures and installations but also works with photography, video, drawings and paintings.

The piece is on display outside the Umeå City Church until December 21. It is part of the project “The Beacon”, where four artists each create a new work in one of four churches.
