An homage to the blue mussels of Öresund. A piece of the strait brought onto land.
Mytilus is an installation that pays homage to the blue mussels of Öresund. The blue mussel (Mytilus edilus) is an integral part of the strait and its landscape. One can easily imagine the dark blue shells clinging to murky bladder wrack at Ribban beach. The mussels are filter feeders and cleanse water as it passes through them, benefitting the strait at large.
Mytilus showcases the beauty of these quintessential benefactors that pass unnoticed, but that most Malmöites have some relation to.
