“Og Stier Leder Oss” (And Paths Lead Us) – A talk
If the coastline of Oslo was a face it would to many be the face of a classical beauty. Well proportioned and harmonious with the elegance of the Opera house, the vivacity of Aker Brygge and the prominent features of Barcode. As a plastic surgeon the city planners have shaped the outline of Oslo after a certain idea of beauty, but what is Oslo beneath all of this? And who are we who live and move through the city?
“Og Stier Leder Oss” (And Paths Lead Us) is a performative boat trip for one person at a time through the Vaterland tunnel. The project is an exploration of Oslo and of ourselves. Where do we come from, and where we are headed?
