​K-LAB is an artist-run, international, interdisciplinary and site-specific platform established in 2007 for art in and with the landscape. Situated in Kjerringøy in Bodø municipality, above the polar circle (67˚ 49’ N and 14˚ 89’ E) in Northern Norway.

​The 9th Kjerringøy Land Art Biennale 23/24 Special Edition

​Professional, international artists are invited to apply to come and make place-specific land art projects in the stunning region of Kjerringøy in Northern Norway.

The Biennale is an interdisciplinary arena where ecology and a mindful interaction with nature are explored. The work is to explore and interact with the place and the natural and biodegradable materials available there, and investigate, transform, alter, reflect or commune with these on site. The activities should not contain any artificial materials and should be made in mindful ways with respect for the place and its inhabitants, creatures great and small. The work will integrate with the landscape or be temporary and gradually decompose.
​Kjerringøy is a place of outstanding natural beauty. The landscape is steeped in wilderness and is breathtakingly beautiful with dramatic mountains, woodlands and marshlands, lowland and highland lakes and  rivers deltas meeting fjords and the sea all around. The area has a great variety of wild flora and fauna, which makes a spectacular setting for just being and making creative and land based work.
The population of the Kjerringøy region is close to 500 people but attracts many summer visitors.
