Shake the Tree



In 2008-2010 I served as artistic consultant alongside Ingrid Berven for a commissioned public art work at Nordahl Grieg Videregående Skole. After a selection process the work SHAKE THE TREE by Maria Udd and Stine Karlsen was selected. I have finally gotten around to add some photos to my web site documenting the work.

As part of the work two quotes by Nordahl Grieg and Mads Gilbert respectively were printed on walls. The quote by Nordahl Grieg, “Hva skal jeg kjempe med, hva er mitt våpen?” was an excerpt from the poem “Til Ungdommen”. This poem again became acutely relevant last year, often used as a hymn in ceremonies and gatherings around Norway following the July 22 terrorist tragedy.
