Within Norwegian artist Per Kristian Nygård’s installation, ‘Not Red But Green,’ a manicured lawn flows into the NoPlace gallery. It is a surreal scene that blurs the lines between inside and outside. ‘Not Red But Green’ was inspired by a dream Nygaard had during a high fever while sick with the flu.
During the dream, Nygaard found a lump on his body and imagined traveling across a crater of flesh and a hairy jungle. The grass covered hills in the installation came from the nightmare and create a confusing experience that makes the viewer question the ways society commoditizes nature.
