About the piece

In his graduation project Den Vidrige, Jakobsson worked with giving life to a completely new form of life. By an investigation in sculptural techniques as well as an interest in pseudo sciences, Jakobsson aims at showing a reality that could exist. In his work he focuses primarily on cryptozoology that is a pseudo science about animals – animals whose existance is contentious. Through the single artworks’ connection with each other, Jakobsson sees a parallell world from which all artworks arise, and that then get through to our side of reality.
