Happy New Year!

As we round off the year 2023, the Abakanowicz exhibition we have designed for Henie Onstad Art Center is ranked as the top 1 art experience from the past year by NRK.

“Det var en fullstendig overveldende opplevelse å gå ned i den høye, åpne salen på Høvikodden, som for en gangs skyld nærmest virker liten, forminsket av de enorme tekstilskulpturene skapt av hamp, sisal og grovt tauverk.

Det var så sanselig og taktilt at jeg måtte ta meg kraftig sammen for ikke å ta på arbeidene.
