Steilneset Memorial – Peter Zumthor
Peter Zumthor is also known to for the Steilneset Memorial in Vardo Norway. Zumthor worked with Louise Bourgeois to design the monument. The Steilneset Memorial was built in memory of 91 individuals who were convicted of witchcraft and burned for it.
There are two separate buildings for the memorial; one being Zumthor’s narrow wooden structure, framing a fabric cocoon. There are 91 windows in the slim building, and each window hangs a light bulb, representing each individual.
The other is a building that holds Bourgeois’ work: seven mirrors resembling judges, all facing a metal, steel chair in the middle.
