The artist Kristine Roald Sandøysund have handmade sculptures of metal and fabric for the facade of the Central Station. The artwork "Balanseklang" (Balancesound) gives an experience of life and volume on the dark wall of the upper Railway Square.
Through humor and play Kristine Roald Sandøy´s sculptures invites to exploration and reflection by the sculptures tactile and balancing form and expression. The sculptures are reminiscent of musical instruments, they are playful in shape and easy to associate over. The artist is keen to show the handycraft behind the artwork, in contrast to all the machine produced objects that surround us in everyday life. The sculptures are displayed against a backdrop of a photo collage from the circus world with different balancing artists from the last century. The sculptures are illuminated at night.
