Bodø Harbour square - Installation october 2011 （Svein Erik Toien photography）
In october 2011, Bodø ArkitektGruppe - BAG - created an architectural installation with elements of sculpture, video and sound art in Nedre Torg (here named Bodø Harbour square), to put a foucus on the possibillities of an important urban space, till now occupied by parked cars. The installation showed to be popular both as a playground for kindergarten kids, youth performing Parcour, an curious passers-by. During the exhibition period of one week, different avantgarde musicians performed informal concerts, as a "teaser" for the Emergency Exit festival taking place late october in Bodø.
