Fedje is a picturesque island north west of Bergen. Like other islands on the Norwegian west coast it housed a German military base in WW II of which one is reminded by concrete ruins all the way from the main road down to the coast line. About 4 km straight ahead from the place where the series of concrete ruins hits the coast, the reason why Fedje is still affected by consequences of the war today lies aground: U 864

The work was realised during an Artist Residency at USF Verftet, Bergen, and supported by the Norwegian German Willy Brandt Foundation
