The Mountain Body – Kolsås. Commission for opening of MUNCH, Oslo

For the opening of MUNCH, artist and choreographer Helle Siljeholm has created a video installation for the screens in the museum, showing dancers and mountaineers scaling the mountains at Kolsås in a performance that took place in August.
At MUNCH, visitors can follow the climbers upwards through the building, culminating in a telescope on the museum’s 11th floor, pointed at the cliff-face. Siljeholm creates both a conceptual and concrete connection between the museum, the city and its surrounding landscape where the mountains form the starting point for different explorations of the relationship between nature and culture in the light of current climate and environmental challenges.

The installation will be screened from 22 October until 27 October.
