ET PORTRÆT AF INGVAR CRONHAMMAR
I portrættet af Ingvar Cronhammar kommer vi ind på livet af den meget omtalte billedhugger. Ingvar er født og delvist opvokset under tumulte forhold i Sverige, men det var først, da han flyttede til Danmark, han fandt sin egentlige identitet. Han har med sit store og melankolske kunstnerhjerte fundet sit egentlige hjem og tilhørsforhold i Midtjylland, Herning. Han er et enkeltmandsfirma i konstant kontakt med ingeniører, håndværkere, bygherrer, museumsfolk osv. Og let er det aldrig. Det skyldes, at Ingvar søger tyngden, dybden, den vanskelige løsning og det ultimative greb. Hans værker skabes af drømme, af forestillinger set i et syn, eller som englænderne kalder det ”in a vision”.

A PORTRAIT OF INGVAR CRONHAMMAR
In this portrait of Ingvar Cronhammar we get a close look into the famous sculptor's life and work. Ingvar is born and raised partly under tumultuous circumstances in Sweden, and it was first when he moved to Denmark, that he discovered his own identity, really. With his big and melancholic artist heart, he has found his home and affiliation in Jutland, Herning. He is a one-man company in constant contact with engineers, craftsmen, builders, museum workers, and so on. And for Ingvar, it is never really easy. That is because Ingvar seeks the depth, the heavy, the difficult solutions, and the ultimate way. His works are created from dreams, or from the difficult ideas that he envisions.
