      Following the same line of thoughts as for the last one. Based on recent travel, is this in Sweden??

          Maybe this one is a bit hard to solve.Anyway I'm sure you can find pictures on google.
          A clue:we are near Stockholm,and the statue is located in a quite new museum.

              OK, so I have arrived at Artipelag, at Varmdo, near Stockholm. But I have not yet located the particular exhibit in your photo, and cannot stop for more searching at the moment.

                Bravo Ivy,that's it.
                I must say this one wasn't easy to find.
                I took this picture in July but we can't see it on the Artipelag website,I don't know why,maybe it was a temporary exhibition...
                Anyway if you type Artipelag on google and click on "image" you'll be able to see few shots of this statue.
                I liked this place,a museum built in a forrest,waters all around,a very"scandi"atmosphere.
                Have a look at www.artipelag.se
                It's your turn now,Ivy.

                  Thank you, Yves, but your last clue was an absolute giveaway! From each name draw a line and the point where they meet is the Artipelag.
                  At one point on the website, which I browsed quickly this morning, I read this: ".....in the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue." That, but expressed more clearly, is what I have tried to say when discussing abstract art with friends - the argument that a) it is sufficient to accept it as it is without hunting for meaning, against b) insisting that the artist had a thought, an idea, a vision of which the artwork is the outcome and which is for us to try to enter into.
                  Anyway, mine is the task now to express my vision of putting to you a devilish, puzzling pic.!

                          Dutchman Joep Van Lieshout's artwork?

                        Yves, I can see you thumping the table, batting yourself on the head, trying to extract that memory. .
                        No, not in the UK - (CURRENT 4-COUNTRY STYLE despite the fact that our man in Singapore refuses to believe my definition.)
