– The project Fjellet Kaller (Call of the Mountain) is focusing on the Mountain. In the face of ecological annihilation I am using Fjellvettreglene (The Norwegian Mountain Code) as a framework for investigating the importance of the Mountain on a material, environmental and a human level. Treating the code as a guide to understand the mountain's function in the biosphere and the place it holds in the human psyche. This exhibition is based on Fjellvettregel no. 2: 'Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions', and consists of found image material combined with text written in collaboration with rock climbers, geologists, photographers, rescue workers, philosophers, artists et al. where man is in conversation with the mountain. Visitors can also hear the Call of the Mountain in a separate installation with sound-art composed using topological, geological and weather related data from selected mountains and mountain areas.
