A short jaunt from the city farm, you can also explore SALT, a nomadic art project that’s made its way around Norway and is on display in Oslo through October 2018.
While SALT has three saunas, bars, a coffee shop, an event space, and a beautiful view of the sea and opera house, it’s the project’s message that resonates. It also doesn’t hurt that after you walk along the shoreline and under a massive fish rack—one of several large wooden constructions on the site—you can sit at one of the surrounding picnic tables drinking beer by the water all day.
The art project comes from the north, from a land of Arctic people who have long lived in harmony with a harsh climate, moving in keeping with the seasons and animal migration. SALT looks at how the ocean has given Norwegians its many resources, and how future generations will also need these resources, drawing attention to the effects of climate change on the country’s own coast.
