Fairy Tale Room


The National Gallery

Universitetsgata 13, 0130 Oslo, Norwegen

The Fairy Tale Room offers audiences a new experience of traditional Norwegian fairy tales. Scenographer Milja Salovaara has created a fairy tale universe with walls in blue velvet and a floor covered with carpets – only the artworks themselves shine in a magic light in the dimly lit room. The entrance portal to the room is a close copy of Theodor Kittelsen’s custom-made frame to the self-portrait diplayed in the room. The portal has been crafted by woodcarver Boni Wiik at the Centre for Rural Culture in Dovre in the heart of Norway.
