STADSHAGEN

7. Concrete Art

Walk to the exit towards S:t Görans sjukhus and take the escalators up to the ticket office. Stay inside the turnstiles.

In the ticket office you’ll see an artwork by Mikael Göransson (born 1959).

Mikael Göransson has created two artworks in concrete, for both of the station’s ticket offices. He developed the technique that he uses himself and called it graphic concrete. The technique allows the artist to transfer images onto the concrete, similar to a graphic image on a piece of paper.

The artist based the design on two photographs. Here, by the exit to S:t Görans sjukhus – the northern exit – the artwork has a forest theme and the title “Transformation – Tveta 12”. At the southern exit, you’ll instead be met by Swedish white beam trees.
