Have you seen the sculpture park in Oslo? Ekeberg Sculpture Park is filled with works by some of the biggest names in contemporary art. Marina Abramovic, James Turrell, Jenny Holzer and Louise Bourgeois are just a few of the artists whose pieces are now scattered through Ekeberg Park, which overlooks the city.
The hilly area is about the same size as Oslo’s other famous park, the Vigeland Sculpture Park, and is inspired by similar international facilities, such as Louisiana outside Copenhagen, Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands, and Storm King Sculpture Park ouside New York.
The park, which is free and open 24 hours a day, is the brainchild of Norwegian art collector and philanthropist Christian Ringnes. He has spent nearly £31m of his own money creating an open-air museum.
