“The center of Fitjar”, a performance by Julien Berthier.

The artist was invited to exhibit on a small island in the Commune of Fitjar, Norway, and decided to find the symbolic center of the area by balancing a map on a point. Then, with the help of the people from the village, he physically extracted the center and moved it onto the small island.

After a couple of days the center was reinstalled in its original place becoming a permanent installation in the mountain.

    I really love the concept and execution. I think I should have kept the center in the island and the hole in the woods. And see what time does with both them, the extracted center and the hole.
    Anyway that’s my opinion, and this a really nice work.
