Abstract [en]

Artworks’ materials and constructions can be sources for remembrance and envisaging intangible aspects hidden from the present. Studies oriented on materials can be another way to retrieve insights that otherwise would have been inaccessible areas of inquiry from the past. There are rarely any written sources or other information captured in the past detailing for us an artworks’ materials and construction that can mediate how it was originally created, which materials were used and why. In such a context artworks’ material can be seen as an archive for exploration of non-written information, which can create an understanding of cultural relation, intended messages and original visual impression.

The thesis aims to explore what aspects it is possible to retrieve through using an altarpiece material and construction as a primary source. Through an art-technological investigation of the early 18th century altarpiece in Gustaf Vasa Church in Stockholm, findings are interpreted and connected to relations and meanings with aid of the perspectives from deconstruction theory. The result shows that interpretation of the physical materials as a source provides access to new contexts beyond the material itself. These insights are discussed in a context that seeks to position the relevance of the outcome in a broader context of the cultural heritage discourse on sacred art in Swedish churches today.
