The artworks in the collection represent the art of sculpture from the '60s to contemporary time.

The idea of sculpture as a "site-construction" indicating function related to a specific milieu, is a concept which developed during the '70s. This led to a radically new understanding of sculpture.

Artscape Nordland is mentally and historically founded on this concept of sculpture. The specific milieu and the natural environment of the area define the basis of artisitc selection.

The climate conditions of the area were also a fact to bear in mind. They related both to the physical demands made of the durability of the works, and to the philosophy of the four seasons.

Another crucial factor was the fact that the works were to be placed in their locations permanently. This meant that the intervention of a temporary scenario had to be avoided, as had the reliance on a specific concept or way of thinking. To impose a thematic programme on a whole region would have implied too narrow a focus.

Artscape Nordland can be viewed in its entirety, in which case the individual works represent certain lines in the development of sculpture during the past three decades.

It can also be seen in terms of the individual works, when the important thing was for each to provide a strong and individual artistic statement and presence.
