Low ridge

Red granite – 2009

The year 1809 changed the order of the world: Finland and Sweden were separated.

Elisabeth Sagefors’ work Low Ridge and Kaarina Kaikkonen’s work Forwards together create a bridge on which the two countries can meet again.

These two artworks were completed in 2009 as a commemoration of the separation of Finland and Sweden 200 years earlier.

The sculptures are owned by the Finnish State Art Commission, which is part of the Finnish National Gallery.
