‘Carousel’ is a pattern of time, light and colors. With its placing and its repetitive form, we want to illustrate Håkonshallen as a place of ceremonial acts and parties through 750 years. It is shown trough the basic form of ‘The ceremony’, repetition, and ‘The party’ as a cultural expression in which community and the sence of belonging is shaped.

‘Carousel’ is curated by Anne Marthe Dyvi at the Bergen Center for Electronic Arts (BEK).The work was commissioned by the Centennial Committee for the 750-year anniversary of Håkonshallen. The work appeared every night from 9th to 18th of September.
