It is meant to be "undefinable" . I will suggest it to be a kind of "landart", an artistic category. The project looks like a fantasy about buildings, towers, stairs, galleries etc, but it represents other and more invisible and sophisticated aspects. It reminds me of A.Gaudis "Sagrada Familia" in Barcelona and Christos landart.It is created by drifting wood, collected along the coast of Kullaberg, Sweden. The ongoing construction, called Nimis, was started by Lars Wilks about 1980 and has princiapially never stopped. Nearby, Lars Wilks started another construction based on the stones from the coast, it´s called Arx. A very interesting dialogue between local government officials - the artist - and the local population through the years has beeen like a surrealistic theaterplay of Samuel Beckett. Even Marcel Duchamp, was officially the owner of the work, during a certain period of "Nimis´" existance, the work has an ISBN-number and there exists 49 other - very small - "Nimis´es".
