Art: Stefan Lindfors´s bird sculpture

A large-scale sculpture resembling a bird by Finnish interior design architect and sculptor Stefan Lindfors has been set up by the entrance road leading to the airport. Finavia ordered the artwork to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence and the opening of Helsinki Airport’s new south pier.

Stefan Lindfors’s 16-metre tall sculpture moves in the wind like a giant weather vane. The sculpture’s massive sail not only works as its source of energy but also as a big screen. The projectors attached to the creature’s wings reflect messages for guests arriving at the airport.

The name of the sculpture is still an open question. Finavia will be looking for a name through an open name contest. The goal is to announce the name on the eve of Finnish Independence Day on 5 December 2017.
