The art project Fremtidens Levninger engages with the haunted dimension in our lives.
It is about the return of the psychological and political mechanisms that are brought to life with today's pandemic. In the state of emergency of our time, there are a number of inherent stories that resonate with previous epidemics.
60,000 people are buried in Sofienbergparken in unmarked graves. They are remains from when the park was Oslo's largest burial ground. Sofienberg burial ground was laid out in 1858, after the cholera epidemic in 1853, and functioned as a cemetery until 1931. Occasionally weather conditions and tele push remnants of bones from the ground.
In the spring of 2020, eight artists were invited to enter into a dialogue with the remnants in the park. The artistic contributions to the Fremtidens Levninger give the haunted form.
