Nimis

Sculptures near Arild at Kullaberg

Nimis, the temporarily very controversial artwork by the artist Lars Vilks, is located on the north side of the Kullaberg near Arild.

Nimis (abundance) is a labyrinth of different towers, mostly built of driftwood, at the foot of the cliff. The constructions have reached a total weight of 75 tons.

The complex started in 1980 by Lars Vilks and has been the subject of dispute between the local building authorities and the artist for years. The authorities requested a building permit, which had not been issued for the natural reserve. Vilks declared the area around Nimis to the micronation Ladonia in 1996. The court ultimately achieved approval for the demolition of the plant, but the deconstruction was not realized by the authorities.

Nimis has become a famous tourist attraction and can be reached only on foot via a small path from the homestead museum Himmelstorp. The trail passes through a relatively steep and rough terrain, sturdy shoes and a good physical condition is required.
