Living the Nordic Light exhibited at Vandalorum

May 11, 2017

From May 6 to October 15 you can see the exhibition Ljus at Vandalorum in Värnamo, Sweden. Through installations and art pieces by 16 Nordic artists, designers, architects and researchers, the exhibition aims to increase the understanding of light and how it influences our perceptions of the world. 

Living the Nordic Light is one of the projects explored in the exhibition. In 2014, Snøhetta created Zumtobel Group’s annual report, Living the Nordic Light, with photography by Sølve Sundsbø and text by Åsne Seierstad and Po Tidholm. By interviewing four centenarians who lived their entire lives above the Arctic Circle, the project looks at the effects of living in, and in the absence, of light. 

Living the Nordic Light has since its launch received numerous awards, including the Red Dot Award for Communication Design, the D&AD Wood Pencil, and the Most Beautiful Book 2015 in Norway. The project was in last exhibited at Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin in 2015. 

Vandlorum is a museum for regional, Swedish and international contemporary art and design. More information on the exhibition can be found here.
