The Arctic Pyramid

The Arctic Pyramid

As you stroll along the Bjørvika shoreline from the Oslo Opera House towards Vippetangen Port, you will find yourself walking under a gigantic fish rack. The Arctic Pyramid is majestic, towering like an open tunnel over the seaside promenade. In the north, the fish rack is used to dry fish. SALT intends to fill it with art, culture and our many visitors.

Every day in the Árdna opening hours you can listen to the sound of whales, seals, pollock and crayfish. You’ll hear Jana Winderen’s aural work for the Arctic Pyramid and gain insight into the sound frequencies that ocean species use for orientation, hunting and communication. This communication is threatened by humanity’s intensified use of ocean areas.
