Ove Fundin, World Champion, 180 x 272 x 100 cm, Tranås, Sweden.
Ove Fundin, 5 times World Champion of speedway. The sculpture was installed in his native town Tranås, Sweden in 2012. It portrays the moment when Ove Fundin is racing out of the first curve, the fraction of a second when he straightens up the front wheel and at full throttle roars forward. The only values are ahead and future. I would love to see the sculpture and Ove Fundin as a symbol of everyone’s ability to dare, not wait for others but take the chance and dare to find the right track and put everything at stake when meeting the difficult challenges of life.
