Mountain of Human Resources

Work5

The sculpture, MannauðsMountain (i.e. Mountain of Human Resources ), expresses the contemporary reality of the subordinate workers and the work ethics that beat the social rhythm.

The sculpture consists of looped sentences from the song Work Bitch by Britney Spears, a green bean for princesses and bean grass climbers, LED sign, steel, some of the basic material that create the homes of John and Jane Doe, and a mirror sitting at the top.

MannauðsMountain refers directly to Mountain, an artwork by Sigurdur Gudmundsson from the seventies, where he interpreted the position and existence of the laborer with a photo of himself lying under a pile of worn shoes, books and bread.

The Sculpture was unveiled in autumn 2014 in The Sculpture Garden of the Reykjavik Sculpture Associations. It was an independent work in a series of exhibitions by Steinunn and Snorri Páll Jónsson Úlfhildarson that took place around Reykjavik in the autumn 2014.
