Overview

 From June 30th until the 17th September 2017 Bymuseet i Bergen will show the exhibition «Journeys to Tadmor» at Bryggens Museum.

In the middle of the Syrian desert lies the city of Tadmor, better known as Palmyra. 2000 years ago Palmyra was a centre for trade and culture, where travellers from large parts of the world tied east and west together. Today, as a result of the ongoing Syrian war, Palmyra has become a symbol for human suffering and the destruction of cultural heritage.

It follows the city from its nomadic roots via its golden age as the wealthiest and most powerful caravan city of the Middle East to its afterlife as a popular destination for adventurers and tourists alike.

In the present conflict the city is not just a physical but also very much a symbolic battleground. Exploring themes of destruction, frailty and renewal, the exhibition presents the temporary sculpture installation «Exhume», inspired by the recent destruction of Palmyra's monuments. The work is constructed in situ by the British multi-disciplinary artist Amanda Chambers.

All texts in English and Norwegian. An Arabic translation is available.
