Abstract [en]

This article uses the elemental concepts of earth, water and fire to examine the

production, use and control of space in the seventeenth-century Wrangel

estate at Skokloster in central Sweden. Using a relational approach, the

paper discusses how the elements symbolically express a part of the

baroque aesthetic, how they were emphasised or pinned down as part of an

economic asset, and how they reacted and produced space in dialogue with

human agents. The reciprocal relations between man and earth through

food production, tenancy and rent, or the management of woodland for firewood,

demonstrate an on-going interaction between various socially-hierarchical

agents. The construction of dams and the control of water illustrate other

struggles between the tenants, the proprietor and the water itself. When

setting up new types of heating systems inside the castle multiple sources

of agency are visualised – the owners, the domestic servants, the woodland

and the fireplaces. The study concludes that the elements operated as more

than aesthetic and philosophical categories, but were empirically-evident

worldly driving-forces.
