City Walks: Akantus Project Kunsthall 3,14 June 6, 13, 20, 27th at 13.00 More dates coming soon… Alt Går Bra invites the general public and professionals to discover the acanthus as an architectural ornament in the city of Bergen. Guided walks depart from Kunsthall 3,14 at 13.00 on the following Saturdays: 6.06, 13.06, 20.06, 27.06. The portal and database www.akantus.no has mapped nearly 250 buildings ornamented with acanthus in Bergen and it seeks photo contributions documenting acanthus in the domestic space. The walks stem from Alt Går Bra’s Acanthus Project, researching the history of a millenary ornament. Starting in Ancient Greece, the acanthus became the single most prolific ornament. The motive is unique in human history since it expanded over the widest geographic area and through the longest time span. The acanthus was particularly embraced in Norway, infusing much of Norwegian traditional arts including rosemaling and stave churches. The motive is popular today among a wide public, ranging from tattoo and motorcycle enthusiasts to five-star hotels customers. The Acanthus Project studies the ornament in its archaeological, aesthetic, and philosophical dimensions. Through this leaf, the research aims to gain further understanding on issues including local, national, and global identities, as well as the relationship between art, architecture, and crafts. For questions contact +47 55 36 26 30 The events are free and open to the public, but will be subjected to Covid-19 restrictions.
