Kivik Art Museum

Kivik Art Museum

Kivik is the first phase in the establishment of a new contemporary art centre in Kivik, Sweden. Snøhetta, together with the Norwegian artist and photographer Tom Sandberg, produced 5 temporary pavilions that combine art and architecture for the new centre.

 

The project is a series of explorations of the spatial and temporal relationship between photography, architecture and the landscape. The project consists of the following elements:


Two Viewfinders: a 2.5x2.5m cube that is open on two sides.

The Mothership: a series of 5 3x5m rectangular concrete elements which function as a flexible exhibition space. 

Two Photo-boxes: a 2.5 x 2.5m cube with a Tom Sandberg photograph silk screen printed on laminated glass on one side and a black neoprene cover on the on the back.  The images stare at each other across a bend in the road.
