Bigert & Bergström's CO2 Lock-In exhibited outside the school

300 kg is the average weight of a Swede's CO2 emissions for three weeks. Outside SSE the kilos can now nail you to the ground. The artwork CO2 Lock-In by the internationally recognized Stockholm-based artist duo Bigert & Bergström is exhibited on Sveavägen 65 until October 22 by SSE Art Initiative in cooperation with Stockholm Konst.

Bigert & Bergström have explored climate change, sustainability, humanity, nature and technology for the last 30 years. We are happy to exhibit their installation CO2 Lock-In for three weeks (October 1–22), outside the main entrance of the school. The foot shackles are made of 100 percent recycled iron, shaped as carbon dioxide molecules.

During the three week exhibition, a series of performances will take place at certain times. The artists, researchers, students and experts will be chained to the artwork to meet students and faculty at the school, as well as the public from Sveavägen.

"The aim is to create and encourage conversations, reflections and knowledge sharing", says Tinni Ernsjöö Rappe from SSE Art Initiative.
