norway-based artist per kristian nygård has infilled the gallery expanse at noplace in oslo with a bright green cascade of grass, sweeping and swerving throughout the space.

 

‘not red but green’ comprises a natural, undulating terrain, spilling out from the entrance doorframe and pressing up against the surrounding windows and walls. lush vegetation floods in every direction, forming a hilly landscape that beckons an instinctual audience participation, although prohibited. the site-specificity of the installation allows it to grow and develop in size and form, and — by placing the mass of organic matter within the context of an indoor gallery — changes the perception of the natural world for the viewer.
