“Rymdfält av frid” (Space of Peace)
The sculpture “Rymdfält av frid” (Space of Peace) from 1972, was created by the Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida. It is a square block of granite situated on the city square, Stortorget, in front of the City Hall.
The artwork remains unfinished. Chillida’s intention with the black granite sculpture is to focus attention on all the wars that are taking place around the world. Not until peace finally prevails will the final touches be made to the sculpture.
Only time will tell if total peace remains a dream. However, until that day, the work will remain unfinished as a reminder of all the large and small wars being fought in various parts of the world.
