Inmeridiem is an artwork by Pedro Gómez-Egaña at the Oslo public library Deichman, Bjørvika.
Inmeridiem centres on a single stone taken from Akerselva river, and brought into the Oslo public library, a site whose purpose is the assemblage of knowledge. Inmeridiem investigates the library’s relation to the river, as well as our own relation to bodies and things. The artwork invites one viewer per day to be with the stone for 10 minutes. The experience includes kinetics, music, and text.
The artwork can be visited by one person per day, and is experienced at the exact moment between sunrise and sunset. Use the "book your spot" button to book your spot.
Spots are released throughout the year. If you don’t find a spot available, please try again on another day.
