With grass so lusciously green, it's almost hard to believe that this artwork existed indoors! Earlier this year, Norway-based creative Per Kristian Nygrd filled the space of the Noplace gallery in Oslo with a rolling lawn that cascaded from nearly a ceiling-height and ended at the edge of a doorway. It was titled Not Red But Green and brought the outdoors inside. Nygrd's incredible piece looks especially tranquil set against the bright white walls.
The site-specific installation featured small, rolling hills in every direction. It begged the viewer to participate by playing on and trekking across the idyllic landscape, although these acts were sadly prohibited. Even still, Nygrd created a fantastical place that's totally unexpected. We often refrain from tracking dirt indoors, but here, it's celebrated in a delightful, inviting way.
