A playful and boundary breaking workshop

The workshop «Suppekunst» (Soup Art) by Anja Carr is inspired by her own photo series «Soup» where her face is bathed in plastic toys and micro plastic mixed with food. The children are invited to compose their own imaginative and picturesque «soup» with all kinds of strange food ingredients, toys, and color pigments — they are also to feel free to take snapshots with your mobile phone or our polaroid cameras afterwards! 

Do you want to join an improv dance tour of our exhibitions?

In this dance tour for children, the dancers use their fantasy in order to immerse themselves in the landscapes and people seen in the paintings. They take the children with them on a journey through the hard and the soft, the melancholic and the lively, death and love. Everything is conveyed with humor and playfulness. An underlying theme here is to challenge established gender norms and to take a closer look at queer ways of expression. This is, amongst other things, shown through costumes and play with gender stereotypic qualities, poses, and movements; all material taken from the performance Blooming. Here, there are no limits to who you can be!

Ticket gives access to workshop and tour. 

Anja Carr primarily works with sculptures, installations, and photography, but sometimes she also does performance art and makes videos. Examples of sculptures she has made are for instance a man-sized lucky charm troll and My Little Pony figures in the size of a real pony. She adds surprising elements to these, elements which can challenge categories such as girls’ toys and boys’ toys, animals and humans, children and adults. 

Carl Aquilizan (he/they) is a Norwegian-Filipino dance artist, educated at Spin Off Pre-Study in Dance and the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, UK. Aquilizan’s artistic practice explores personal reflections on social and cultural norms, and how to challenge established thinking. He is currently performing the solo piece Flower Boy (part of Dansenett Norge, 2024) and the performance, Blooming (shown at Kloden Teater and at MUNCH). Both works explore gender norms and queer identity.
