NY HORISONT by DE JENZ, 02.2022
Alver municipality, Vestland (N)

.

NEW HORIZON invites the Alver public to re-view their horizon on the grounds of historic change. The artwork engages the foundation of an abandoned home that was used as a tax- and unemploy-ment office and a library before being demolished.

From within this ruin, a two-way periscope points to the bridge that connects the island municipality with the mainland, while from outside the ruin the view is reversed: Current global urgencies replace the former pull towards cities with a new focus on local anchoring and potentials.

The idea behind NY HORISONT is to anchor the art work by involving the local community, engaging in local collaboration and using local materials.
