Ørnulf Opdahl – Winter solstice
Ørnulf Opdahl – Winter solstice
KUBE 28.4.–31.12.17
 
This year’s main exhibition is the retrospective exhibition “Winter solstice”, featuring paintings by Ørnulf Opdahl. Taking his cue from the dramatic, jagged landscapes of Northwestern Norway, Opdahl has distinguished himself as one of the major innovators of the Norwegian landscape painting tradition. By taking a closer look at Opdahl’s works from the 1960s to the present, we want to shed light on aspects from his oeuvre that so far have received less attention. The exhibition is based on the tension between light and darkness that recurs throughout his works and that charges them with psychological undercurrents that tie into the dark fields of the Nordic art scene. In connection with the exhibition, we will offer an extensive programme of artist talks, tours, lectures, workshops and more.

THE CITY – that could have been
THE CITY – that could have been
Jugendstilsenteret 17.6.16–30.9.17
 
THE CITY – that could have been is an encounter with the unrealised building projects in the history of Aalesund. While they remained dreams, sketches and models, they also became newspaper articles, action committees and uproar. They were someone’s failures, and someone else’s victories.The buildings and streets of a city is the story of the city on a large scale. How is this urban landscape created? The design of a city does not just change overnight, as it did in the fire of 23 January 1904. Change also sneaks up on you, with passing time and changing living conditions. Some people thought that the unrealised building projects were dead-ends; others felt that they were possibilities and solutions. The unrealised building projects all have a common denominator: public debate. They are part of the story about how the city came to be.  Our exhibition offers several leaps of imagination. What if the city had not burnt? What if we could walk to Nordre Rønneberghaug and see the train roll up to the platform at Buholmen? Would the story of the city have been different?

The dining room
The dining room
Jugendstilsenteret permanent exhibition
 
On the first floor you find the beatiful dining room of pharmacist J.A. Øwre, which is carefully restored and set for a dinner party. The room is designed as a total work of art. You may notice that all the furniture in the dining room seems specially designed for this room – and indeed it is. This is a fine example of Gesamtkunstwerk (a total work of art) where the architect designs the entire room down to the smallest detail: the table and chairs, panelling and mouldings, even the brass fittings on the buffet are custom made for this particular interior.  This work by Hagbarth Schytte-Berg (1860–1944) is stylistically related to an interior designed by architect Henrik Bull for the Stockholm Exposition of 1897. In contrast to traditional dragon style furniture, the ornamentation here is simpler and is concentrated on the central parts and joints of the furniture pieces. This restraint accentuates their form and allows the ornamentation to take secondary importance.

The time machine
Jugendstilsenteret permanent exhibition
 
Our time machine takes visitors back to the town fire of 1904. Over twenty screens showing videos, photos and animations combine with audio and visual effects and exhibits to give visitors a powerful experience of the town fire and reconstruction of Ålesund. The town fire of 23 January 1904 turned Ålesund into Norway’s art nouveau town. The town fire, which was the biggest peacetime fire in Norway’s history, destroyed the old town’s wooden buildings, leaving 10,000 of the town’s 12,000 inhabitants homeless. The whole of the new town – over 600 houses, half of which were masonry buildings – was built from 1904 to 1907. The result was that Ålesund became one of Norway’s most characteristic towns. Ålesund is the only town in Norway where the town centre consists entirely of masonry buildings. Never before or after have so many Norwegian architects worked on the same construction project. Over fifty people, more than thirty of whom were trained architects, designed houses in the new Ålesund. The reconstruction of Ålesund took place whilst Norway was in the process of breaking free from its union with Sweden. This meant that the architects were keen to include “national” features in their buildings. What should “Norwegian architecture” look like, they wondered? On the other hand, they had trained abroad, and were outward-looking and well-informed about contemporary trends. All of these factors are reflected in the architecture of Ålesund. With hindsight it is possible to see that many of the characteristics of the international art nouveau movement influenced the designs that can be seen in Ålesund.
