Oslo Impressions – Part 3

Standard

The city of Oslo has modern Opera house.

You can walk up and are rewarded with a beautiful view.

They are building a new Library at the right side of the picture.

You can see glass art from Monika Bonvicini called ‘She Lies‘.

It is a permanent installation, floating on the water in the fjord on a concrete platform, rising 12 metres (39 ft) above the water surface.

The sculpture turns on its axis in line with the tide and wind, offering changing experiences through reflections from the water and its transparent surfaces.

Leandro Erlich: Dalston House

Internationally known for captivating, three-dimensional visual illusions, Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to create Dalston House, an installation in Hackney.

Located in Hackney, Dalston House is a temporary installation comprising a reconstructed house facade lying face-up and a mirror positioned over it at a 45-degree angle.

As a person walks over the surface of the house, the mirror reflects their image and creates the illusion that they are walking up the walls. Similarly, visitors can make it look like they are balancing over the cornices or dangling from the windows.

The brick walls and decorative window mouldings of the three-storey facade are designed to mimic the nineteenth-century Victorian terraces that line many of London’s streets, particularly a row of houses that once occupied this site on Ashwin Street.

It is an amazing piece of art and we had a great time and fun together!
