𝐊𝐈𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐅𝐎𝐒-𝐌𝐔𝐒𝐄𝐄𝐓 У богатых норвежцев — свои причуды. Они любят коллекционировать предметы искусства, создавать музеи и закладывать парки. Можно возразить, что эти деньги лучше потратить на благотворительность или раздать бедным. Но я думаю, что поддержка культуры — самое важное и долгосрочное вложение. Представить себе Москву без Пушкинского музея или Третьяковской галереи, а Осло без Ригнес парка сегодня уже невозможно.

Кристен Свеос, финансист, коллекционер и потомок одной из богатейших норвежских семей, 20 лет назад заложил парк скульптур на месте закрывшегося семейного завода. Постепенно Кистефос превратился в один из крупнейших музейных центров Норвегии. Старые заводские помещения переоборудовали в маленькие исторические музеи и галереи, где выставляются молодые художники. А в парке представлены работы известных современных скульпторов, таких как Марк Мандерс, Тони Крэгг и даже Илья Кабаков.

18 сентября на территории комплекса открылось новое здание — уникальный Мост-музей «The Twist». Это крытый закрученный мост через реку Рандсельва, являющийся одновременно и галереей, и мостом, и скульптурой. Здание, построенное датским архитектурным бюро BIG Бьярке Ингельса, прекрасно вписано в окружающий ландшафт и уже стало одной из архитектурных жемчужен страны. Может быть, через сто лет, вместо Италии и Франции туристы будут отправляться в Норвегию, чтобы познакомиться с шедеврами скандинавской архитектуры, созданными благодаря норвежским меценатам.

A quick trip to Kistefos about an hour’s drive from Oslo to see the stunning museum built by Christen Sveaas on property that includes the pulping mill begun by his grandfather. The site is incredibly beautiful and I was fortunate to see it blanketed with snow the day after it closed for the season, thanks to Christen’s generosity (he is seen standing in front of the window overlooking the river below). Contemporary sculpture is wonderfully placed throughout the landscape, which reminds me of the early nineteenth century Norwegian painters—especially Fearnley—that are another of his interests. His love of Norwegian painting and the Norwegian landscape is evident in the Met’s gallery that bears his name and generous gifts. Thank you Christen. Oh yes: that donut-like fountain is by Marc Quinn and is a replica of Christen’s right iris. It’s fabulous with the water pouring through it: titled: All Nature Flows through Us. Which the museum and site certainly celebrates #norway #kristofas #landscape #trees #art #nature

... and so I am back home after 9 weeks of adventure in the Norwegian woods!
It has been an absolute honour to work with and perform in Howard Hodgkin and Martin Creeds 'Inside Out' curated by Guy Robertson at Kistefos Museet and inside their new building 'The Twist'. The whole sculpture park is a must see if you ever travel over near Oslo!

A big ‘Thank You’ to Martin and his wonderful team Rob and Vanessa.
Many thanks to Guy who did a brilliant job with the exhibition.
Furthermore, I want to extend the biggest thanks to the rock and heart that is Typhaine Delaup for both organising the movement direction of this, making sure that we survive all performances, spending approx. 16h/day with me (which is work and impressive by itself!) and for bringing me into this beautiful world.
Fun facts is that we performed 6 days a week and finished on 338 (me) and 378 (Typhaine) performances of Martin Creed's 'Work no. 2243. Dancing to the Paintings (2015-2019)' yesterday.
HOOOOORAYY!

Lastly, I want to thank all the staff at Kistefos and especially the guides and food truck-mamas there, the security team that became our little family in the midst of it all and the dancers we performed alongside at the opening and closing.
It really was an experience I will never forget.

About an hour outside of Oslo lies @kistefos - an old paper mill that’s been transformed into the most magical outdoor sculpture park... In literally the middle of nowhere, there are huge installations featuring artists such as Marc Quinn, Tony Cragg, Yayoi Kusama, Jeppe Hein, Anish Kapoor, Martin Creed, and many others. We visited today to see ‘The Twist’ - a new bridge/museum/ sculpture space that is without a doubt one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen for ages, joining the North and South banks of the Randselva river. A very special place indeed.

Beautiful day back in Norway at @kistefos museet for the final day of Hodgkin & Creed : Inside Out. Beautiful museum, gallery and sculpture park. Even got to try my hand at forging a Viking style pendant thing. Brills

Yesterday I visited Kistefos, if you are in Norway please visit this place.

A sculpture park for contemporary art.
The history of Kistefos started with the old wood pulp mill more than 100 years ago. The industrial history is a running theme throughout the park and is inextricably linked to Kistefos` history. The river Randselva runs through the entire area and was in the early days the very foundation for the industry at the site. Today, it materializes as a beautiful and soothing signature.
When our new museum The Twist is finished, Christen Sveeas` vision of a symbiose between industry, sculpture and art will be complete.

Plus you can see the work of the amazing architect Bjarke Ingels. I would move in ASAP.

More pictures will follow.
