A Scream from Nature event at Oslo's old air port Fornebu. Anni Onsager from Studio W took the initiative for this happy and fun arrangement!
Artist Lise Wulff is the founder of the Scream from Nature project, which is an environment art project and a contemporary interpretation of Munch’s masterpiece The Scream, in which the iconic anxiety-ridden face is recreated outdoors in large formats.
Munch himself felt a scream through nature and painted The Scream. Now, more than 100 years later, we hear another “scream” from nature: extreme weather, melting glaciers, droughts, floods, and massive extinctions of animal and plant species are just some of the huge challenges the world faces today.
Developed in collaboration with amongst others the environment NGO Bellona, Pure CSR and Serbian artist Branislav Nikolic, The Scream from Nature is included in the official celebration of Edvard Munch's 150 years anniversary; Munch 150, and the United Nations Environment Programme is a collaborating partner.
Thanks to Sparebankstiftelsen DNB, The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Norwegian Ministry of the Environment, Oslo Kommune, and the project’s digital media partner PanStudios.
