Helge Skodvin: New Norwegian Fauna in the Years 2014-2022
opening: Foyer Forum, ul. Legionowa 5, admission free
The Species Data Bank has registered 28,417 animal species in Norway. What I want with Observations of a New Norwegian Fauna in the Years 2014-2022 is to document Norway and the landscape through an alternative and expanded Norwegian fauna. A wildlife where we are and where we live. A zoological low-threshold offering; none of the animals are real. None of them are staged.
