Borrowed Landscape-Bergen was developed in the Rimi supermarket in the city center of Bergen, during the Oktoberdans Festival from October 24 to 27 2012. This performance infiltrated into the store’s routine and created small contrasts. It introduced a grocery poetry, or rather a poetic angle to what actually is a central place in our everyday lives: the supermarket as a place where we buy our groceries without considering the unique reality that it could represent.
The duration of the performance was 4 hours.
