Photographer's Note

Uten Tittel by Dan Graham

One of the biggest of the Lofoten Islands and the most easterly of the archipelago is Austvågøya. On this island, we were camping just a few kilometers from this sculpture which can be found close to E10 at “Lyngvær old ferry” some 25 km west from Svolvær.
This two-way mirror construction is made of stainless steel, it is about 2,5 meter high and 3 meter wide.

Mr. Graham arrived in Lofoten one quiet spring morning to find the location for his artwork. We walked and drove around Austvågøy, and we travelled by boat to Skrova. We visited a plethora of different locations: fishing villages, art institutions and private homes alike. Dan Graham himself was calm and present. He had a penetrating eye, like he was imprinting the ever-changing landscape around us on his mind.

On his third and final day in the are, he told us to return to Lyngvær. As we slowly approached the old ferry landing, Graham yelled "Stop!"
Another minute or two later, and he specified further: "There!" Graham lifted his hand to shield his eyes as he scouted across the water. He had found the site for his next sculpture...
