The Weight of Oneself

Designed by artists Elmgreen & Dragset, the work represents heroic nude and marble. This sculpture, 2.7 m high, is a landmark in the landscape.

The Weight of One Self
Vincent Drisch

This representation of a standing man carrying another man, inanimate, in his arms, as if saved from drowning, is disturbing. The faces of the two characters turn out to be identical. The man wears his double, thus becoming his own savior but also his own burden!
