Eastern Norway Viken LILLESTRØM

Yes to all - sculpture

  •  /  km From You
Overview

The purpose of Skulpturstopp is to contribute to increasing awareness and knowledge about art by placing works by accomplished contemporary artists in communities in Eastern Norway.

BACKGROUND

Skulpturstopp stems from an art-appreciation project carried out by the Lillehammer Art Museum in 2007 with support from The DNB Savings Bank Foundation. The project was called Kunst som finnes (Existing Art) and aimed to draw people’s attention to the art to be found in their local community and outside the realm of the traditional art institutions. As part of the project, Lillehammer Art Museum documented the artworks in public space in the Oppland and Hedmark counties.

One of the discoveries made by Kunst som finnes was that there was a limited scope of quality art at the local level. Inspired by the project Skulpturlandskap Nordland, The DNB Savings Bank Foundation wished to establish a similar initiative in Eastern Norway, which would showcase work by internationally established artists. They therefore formed a working group consisting of Svein Olav Hoff and Birthe M. Selvaag from Lillehammer Art Museum, Anders Bjørnsen and Sissel Karlsen from The DNB Savings Bank Foundation, and curator Maaretta Jaukkuri to develop Skulpturstopp.
