Not Red But Green by Per Kristian Nygård

Words

A few months ago German artist Olafur Eliasson installed a riverbed at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, now fellow artist Per Kristian Nygård created the piece ‘Not Red But Green’ in Oslo. He filled the whole space of No Place Gallery in Oslo with a bright green meadow, sweeping and swerving throughout the space. Lush vegetation floods in every direction, forming a rolling landscape, conflating the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. The installation raises questions about the way we commodify natural phenomena for human consumption.
