Set within the site of Sverre Fehn’s Hedmark Museum (1967-79) in Hamar, Norway, the project Within the Horizon takes place as an intervention and collaboration with Fehn’s architecture. Constructed on the site of a former Bishop’s castle, the museum is a series of ramps, stairs and walkways that lead the visitor around, through and under the ruins of this archeological site. Fehn’s design utilizes circulation as a means to experience the spaces and his architecture acts as a guide to the museum visitor’s experience, ushering us to the various sights and locations throughout the historic site. Through Fehn’s careful choreography, Within the Horizon investigates the choreography of the space through the performance of dance.
Within the Horizon is a multi-channel video installation incorporating a collaborative performance with contemporary dancers and the architecture of Sverre Fehn’s Hedmark Museum. In addition to the video installation, durational performances will take place during the exhibition period from May 20-28, 2017 that will engage the video installation, architecture and public audience.
