Sukkerbiten is a great place to eat and drink in the summer, right on the water with a view of the Opera house. It´s run by a selection of Oslo’s clubs and bars, and the program changes through the summer.
Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi, ( b. 1976 ) is represented by the Little Black Gallery in London but lives and works from Oslo. Her two latest series Starlets and Do Not Disturb set her distinct self portrait style.
Joining tragedy with humor in a staged narrative setting, she presents a series of tragic-comic personas from tormented suburban housewives to roller disco divas.
Strangest second hand store in Oslo, run by two blind elderly ladies, and only open on Mondays and Thursdays. The store is tiny and crammed, you can do a scoop, but the prices are fairy unpredictable, the ladies have a very independent pricing-system.
Design and Architecture centre in Oslo. They have some quite cool professional exhibitions here as well as student graduate exhibitions. It’s a really nice building (which you would kind of expect) right next to the river that divides the east and west of Oslo.
The City Hall ( Rådhuset ) is my favorite building in Oslo, it was designed by Arnstein Arneberg and Magnus Poulsson and completed in 1950. I love the main hall with its 21 meter high ceilings, and wall paintings by Norwegian artists Henrik Sørensen og Alf Rolfsen.
