You will now be able to see the art exhibition Bilder ur Natten (’Pictures from the night’) by the photographer Anders Alm at the airport. Beginning January 23, the exhibition will be on display in the departure hall.

Is there night in the summer when light is everywhere? Is it always night during the winter in Norrbotten, in the far north of Sweden? Can one define ‘night’? Anders Alm asked these questions as the art project Bilder ur Natten developed under strict forms and conditions. The result is a series of images of how night in the far north of Sweden can look twelve months of the year – an exhibition that conveys calm, melancholy and enchantment.

You are invited to experience the exhibition in the departure hall, after the security checkpoint, between January 23 and April 9, 2015.
