Cilla Berg

Berg takes the museum's collected artefacts as her point of departure: objects kept behind protective glass and out of reach, escaping tactile desire. The artist has reinterpreted a number of artefacts and lets them take the form of sculpture or costume. Visitors are encouraged to physically engage with the sculptures by taking part in a procession through the building. Berg draws on what are often dark stories behind these objects, highlighting the museum as a place where history is formulated.
