147 KG is a sculptural project which takes 147 kilograms of paraffin wax as its starting point. The wax is white in color, odorless, slightly translucent, and has a melting point of around 60 °C. Heat facilitates transformation. It can be shaped and reshaped and reshaped again, without loss of material.

Coming from a background in architecture, Marijn Roos Lindgreen’s main interest lies in space. More specifically, in the way our daily surroundings influence us. She investigate’s how certain spatial signs can manipulate our instinctive feelings about a space and try, in her way, to manipulate those signs to create another experiential outcome.
