Pedro Gómez-Egaña is an artist and composer based in Oslo, who teaches at the Art Academy at the University of Bergen. He was born in Colombia in 1976.
The commissioned projects for Munchmuseet on the Move (2019) take their starting point from the view from Bjørvika, where a new neighbourhood has emerged on the waterfront near new Munch Museum. The gaze may be directed outwards across the water, backwards into the history of the old industrial port or introspectively into the individual. Pedro Gómez-Egaña will create a performative installation featuring a soundtrack relating the story of a person with agoraphobia. The starting point for the work is the old engineering works at Nylands Mekaniske Verksted, which operated from 1857 until 1971 in Bjørvika, where the Aker River meets the fjord.
