‘Evidence in Rock’ now open in Alta in Norway

Kvorning Design & Communication has masterminded the World Heritage Rock Art Centre – Alta Museum’s new 150 sq.m permanent exhibition, ‘Evidence in Rock’, about Alta’s world heritage, rock art, which has opened in Alta in Finnmark county, Norway.

A modern, interactive exhibition about the rock art of Alta, which includes UNESCO-protected rock carvings and rock paintings made approximately 7,000 to 2,000 years ago. Alta has Northern Europe’s largest occurrence of rock art from the hunter-gatherer society. It constitutes the most important evidence of settlements and human activity so far north during prehistoric times. And as a result it was added to UNESCO’s world heritage list as early as 1985.

The exhibition offers plenty of interaction and entertainment for everyone. Here, for example, visitors young and old can sculpt out a rock carving, go exploring in the history of Alta in the ’Landscape Game’ and generate luminescent rock carvings in the dark by lamplight. ‘Evidence in Rock’ offers experiences and activities that will wow, inform, generate debate and provide food for thought. The exhibition also includes a selfie booth with Northern Lights, buttons and infographics that conjure up and animate the magic of the spirit world of the past.

Harriet Hagan, Manager of the World Heritage Rock Art Centre at Alta Museum, states:

“With ‘Evidence in Rock’ we invite the public to enjoy experiences, participation and exploration, while at the same time encouraging their curiosity and engagement. The exhibition provides an altogether different experience to previous exhibitions, and visitors will learn about rock art by using both their hands and their heads. The museum has been working on the exhibition for many years, and we are extremely proud that we can now show it off to both the local population and all our visitors.”

The exhibition was won as part of an international competition.

New exhibition for Danfoss in Als

Kvorning Design & Communication is responsible for the concept, design and production of the Danfoss Museum’s new permanent exhibition, ‘Mads and his dreams’, about the founder, Mads Clausen (1905-1966). Set on his native farm in Als, the exhibition takes its cue from Mads’s ability to dream throughout his life. From pure imagination and fervent desire during his boyhood, through inspiration and creativity in his youth, to concrete goals for the future during adulthood.

‘Mads and his dreams’ brings to life the tale of a person who is capable of dreaming, setting himself goals and accomplishing them. A narrative device with conscious dramatic art, light, sound and projections. The rooms of the farm create filmic backdrops to the anecdotes. A poetic and unconstrained layer that underpins the narrative. Displays operate on sight-lines and axes, positioning central experiences and points de vues at the end of them, with one room thereby introducing the next. In parallel with Mads’s life story and Danfoss’s development, the rooms and the stories unfurl – ups and downs – joys and sorrows.
