Jesse Sipola – Grave of an Era – Finland

Jesse Sipola - Hrob z jiné doby, author: Archiv Infocentra

Metal symposium 2015

When we saw Jesse Sipola's work on his website, we were intrigued by a video in which he himself appears at a forge, creates an interesting piece of art using a pneumatic hammer and then disappears. We forwarded the video to David Szalay and he agreed with us that we definitely had to invite this artist. We contacted Jesse Sipola and he agreed to attend.

 Jesse Sipola was probably the biggest challenge for us in terms of the required material. This was because he asked for 3 metres of train rails. We did not know where to obtain such material legally and we are certainly not the ones to go stealing metal-bearing items at night! Finally, we contacted a lady who was already retired but who had worked for ČD Cargo (Czech Railways) in the past. Thanks to her contacts, we managed to find the rails.

 We still lacked a press that was needed for his work at the Metal Symposium and were unable to find a sponsor. So he decided to change his original plans slightly. He eventually finished his work to his satisfaction without the press.
