\"The Forgotten City”. Permanent art installation, part of a regional art project. In collaboration with artist Jan Håfström.
Instead of building a central art museum in Nordland’s residential city of Bodø, over forty Scandinavian and international artists were invited to execute permanent works in all the municipalities in the country, many of which are isolated between fjords and mountain massifs. The point of departure for our collaboration was a newspaper picture of a bombed-out Kurdish village in northern Iraq. The work is designed as an unexpected scene in the dramatic landscape by the village Inndyr. It takes the form of paved frames and low reliefs in the area’s quartzite, a reminder of the devastated villages.
