Copper Mine's Fate
2021

Copper mine dust, blood and crystal
28 x 12 x 12 cm



The road went through dry and forestless areas,
In the distance, one could discover the city
of Falun through thick, black clouds that
marked the sky.

The landscape changed color.

Sweden, a country of green and gray, suddenly
became red and black. The sky got darker the
closer you got. In the end, the sun's rays
could not penetrate the dense fumes - it was
night even though it was day. The air smelled
of sulfur, the streams were red with iron and
death was constantly present.

The rooms in Andreas R Andersson's exhibition are
scarily authentic, struck by such an unexpected
and biting cold that it is difficult to imagine how
we once could move through them. As experienced
visitors, we can still recognize the space of the
gallery, the light and the white walls. But everything
is desolate now, like forbidden zones where the last
breaths must have turned into a crippling carbon
dioxide poisoning.

What perhaps strikes us first is the sculpted image of two
frozen bodies, once idealized for their crusades and their
colonial conquests.Here they are reminiscent of a strange
manifestation and a kind of apology for all of us
missionaries and prospectors who never wanted to see
how our beliefs, our actions and the hunt for trophies
constantly contributed to mass death and an impoverished
earth. A land that had to become someone else's worries
and crumbs to try to survive on.

Then they appear one by one; the tracks that lead into the
snow and through the broken landscapes. We are soon
facing huge machines. Unsentimental relics that seem to
have frozen stuck in the tundra. In the exhibition, they
are darkly luminous and digital mirages. In reality, they
are repressed wounds in time and an almost
self-sustaining weapons in the occupying power and banal
violence of the global economy. A violence that flows
from the excited notion of eternal production and that
tirelessly chews continent after continent, ravages,
explodes and tears.

The name “Road of Bones” speaks of the painful events
associated with the construction of the Kolyma Highway.
The road was constructed from the 1930s to the 1950s.
Political prisoners of the Stalin regime of the Soviet
Union were forced to build the road using hand tools.
During its construction, thousands of these prisoners
died because of the unfavorable working conditions and
the harsh cold weather. Many prisoners were also shot
dead for not working hard enough. The bodies of these
dead people were buried beneath the road.
