Sculpture, “Toilet Paper Roll”, sterling silver. Swedish silversmith Olle Olls has created this sculpture of a toilet paper roll in sterling silver. In a time where we have lost so much control, it makes sense to search for comfort and continuity in our basic needs. The simplest everyday objects become increasingly valuable and something to hold onto, giving us a glimmer of safety and control. Olle Olls’ sculpture perfectly illustrates this new elevation of importance given to a previously mundane object.
Olle Olls (b. 1971) lives and works in Stockholm. He works at The Oxenstierna Manor on Storgatan 31, Stockholm. Olls holds an MFA in Metal Design from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
