Open Call: commission to create a sculpture of Anna Rogstad


Open Call: commission to create a sculpture of Anna Rogstad
For Eidsvolls plass in Oslo


On behalf of the Norwegian parliament (the Storting), KORO – Public Art Norway announces an Open Call for a commission to create a sculpture of Anna Rogstad for Eidsvolls plass in Oslo.

About the commission
In connection with the Storting’s commemoration of 100 continuous years of female membership, a decision has been made to place a sculpture of Anna Rogstad in Eidsvolls plass. Anna Rogstad was the first woman to sit in the Storting. The Storting’s Presidium has decided that the work should be a sculpture that is a recognizable portrait of Rogstad.

KORO will assist the Storting with the planning and execution of the project. The curator responsible for managing the project is KORO senior curator Trude Schjelderup Iversen. The producer is Anna Katharina Haukeland.

The Storting has appointed a jury that will serve as the project’s decision-making body. The jury will be chaired by the President of the Storting.

The public square known as Eidvolls plass is one of the most famous sites in Norway for gatherings, demonstrations and public debates. The square was named in 1864 while the Storting building was under construction. The name was intended to emphasize the connection between the Constituent Assembly, which gathered at Eidsvoll in 1814, and the Storting. The lion sculptures installed in 1865 on the corners closest to the Storting building are the source of the building’s nickname Løvebakken.

Between 1964 and 2014, five sculptures of men of historical significance for Norway as a nation and the Storting were installed in the square. The sculptures in the square today represent: Storting President W.F.K. Christie; King Christian Frederik; Johan Sverdrup, the father of Norwegian parliamentarism; Storting President Carl Joachim Hambro; and Prime Minister Christian Michelsen. Accordingly, the Rogstad sculpture will help to address the current sculptures’ gender imbalance.

KORO will lead the implementation of the project. Following the Open Call, the curator will present the jury with a recommendation as to which artists should be invited to compete for the commission. The curator will also facilitate the jury’s final decision-making process by preparing an opinion as to which artist should be selected to execute the commission.

The winner of the competition will be announced in mid-September 2021.

The sculpture will be unveiled on March 8, 2023.

European Glass Context 2021 Exhibitions
Four underlying categories will shape the exhibitions. By setting a contemporary framework for the exhibitions, we want to put together two exhibitions that will largely reflect significant and new works, as well as the innovative, activist, experimental and sustainable trends in European glass.

Ca. 60 artists will be represented with major significant works. A curatorial group of 7 glass professionals from selected regions in Europe will make the final selection of artists representing all 31 invited European countries.

Artwork can be made in any technique and form of artistic expression. The materials used in the artwork must be predominantly glass. Objects must be unique and not part of serial or industrial production. Artwork must be available throughout the full exhibition period. Artwork must be contemporary and made in 2016 or later, work produced before this time will not be accepted.

Who can participate?
All 27 members of the European Union as well as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland and UK are invited to participate in the EGC2021 exhibitions. Artists must be of the nationality or be a resident in the country they represent.

The EGC2021 Prizes and Jury
Two prizes of € 10.000 € and € 5000 will be given to two outstanding artists or artists groups, selected among the participants in the exhibitions. A jury of three international members with expertise within the field of glass will go through the exhibitions before the opening and select the prize winners. The winners will be announced at the exhibition opening.

Exhibition Catalogue
The exhibitions are documented with an exhibition catalog. This publication with all participating countries also serves as a European statement and reference book for contemporary glass in Europe. The publication is therefore in demand in the country's largest libraries and can also be found in specialist libraries at educational institutions and museums around Denmark and in the rest of the world.
