Last week, Pikene på Broen hosted the opening of Per Berntsen’s exhibition Metsä at our new project space, Terminal B.
The exhibition was opened by the major of Sør-Varanger, Rune Rafaelsen, and Pikene på Broen’s artistic director, Luba Kuzovnikova.
The 40 large format photographic prints in black and white cover a vast area of the Barents region – examining the landscape that connects all four nations in the Barents region.
We are used to saying that the Barents region is like a family – culturally, politically, economically – despite the fact that we are five nations and four lands, with many dialects and variations even within the same languages, and not least all other languages that enrich our region. The exhibition [Metsä] makes us see that we Barents citizens live in the same forest family.
