Nesodden Land of the Free – Aqua Viva

    Nesodden - Land of the free

    At this year's festival, we want to focus on art in all its forms. This spring, the festival went out with an Open Call to artists everywhere where we invited them to create land art on Karlsøya during the festival. Every day beyond this week, we present the incredible projects that various artists will realize during the next 2 weeks. First up is none other than Nesodden - Land of the free.

    Land art is a direction in modern visual art that made itself felt from the end of the 1960s. The artists work in, with and on nature, often with projects of limited duration, such as signs in snow, on fields and meadows and the like.


    Nesodden Land of the Free – Aqua Viva

    We are looking forward to participating with the performance "Aqua Viva" ("living water") at Land Art on the evening of Friday 5 August at the Karlsøy Festival. This time we turn our attention to the sea, the fish and the other wonderful creatures we find there.
