Home Gardening

Millesgården is an art museum and sculpture garden, located on the island of Lidingö, just outside Stockholm. It is located on the grounds of the home of Swedish sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955).

Employed during the seasons 2005-2008, my tasks included: care and maintenance of the sculpture and stone surfaces, raking gravel paths and cleaning, repair of joints in paved walkways, and demolition and re-construction of a wooden facade on the artist's home.

I was responsible for the fountain, its completion before and after the season, and for its operation during the season. I was also responsible for the studio garden, the enclosed hot compost and the garden compost. I took care of the hive and collected the honey.

The photographs presented in the photobook "In the sculptor's park, Millesgården" (Carlsson, Stockholm 2008) were taken during the seasons of 2005-2007.
