Norway-based artist Per Kristian Nygård fills a gallery with rolling green hills, or rather, filled the exhibition space of NoPlace Gallery in Oslo with the exploration of capabilities and the limitations of the spatial. The green hilly landscapes, Not Red But Green (2014), were supported by wooden constructions and grown from seeds that had been planted weeks earlier during the summer in the damp gallery rooms, creating optimal growing conditions for the sculpture.
Nygård says the work was “seemingly meaningless and confusing – as a contrast to the all-encompassing meaningful and personalised we surround ourselves with”.
