Permanent Alice Aycock sculpture at Royal Djurgården20/11/2020
This summer Royal Djurgården hosted a fantastic exhibition organised by the Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, which featured six sculptures by the American artist Alice Aycock. And now one of the sculptures will be a permanent feature here at Royal Djurgården! The sculpture ‘Hoop-La’ will be the first sculpture in a permanent sculpture park here at Royal Djurgården.
“The Governors of the Royal Palace and the Royal Djurgården administration have a long-term plan for the development of the entire Rosendal parkland. This multi-year plan was launched with the inauguration of the Bernadotte Promenade in 2018 and the Folke Bernadotte bridge in 2019. We believe that sculptures will be congenial with the continued development of the parkland”, says the Governor of the Royal Palaces, Staffan Larsson.
This summer’s temporary outdoor exhibition was seen by many of Djurgården’s millions of visitors. The exhibition was Alice Aycock’s first solo exhibition in Scandinavia and the first exhibition organised by the Foundation.
The sculpture is located next to the Folke Bernadotte bridge.
Thank you to the Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, who through this exhibition have helped to offer even more large, green, beautiful and open spaces to visit at Royal Djurgården.
