Tysta Marigången is a sensory threshold, a liminal passage between states of mind; a place and a non-place. It is a walk-through passage located in the center of Stockholm, and yet barely used and unknown to most. What is this tunnel’s purpose? Has it been here all this time? Will it still be here in the future? Where will I end up if I enter? Through passages, cities create ways of going out and coming back in. ‘Tunnel Vision’ serves as a portal into a different way of understanding public space and our role in it, a different state of Stockholm. Here, the hidden struggles, the bubbling tensions of the city are brought to the surface. The tunnel is both cold and quiet, but it can also be loud with hopes, disappointments, and the echoes of passing cyclists.
For the Nobel Week Lights, we invite visitors to Tysta Marigången – to witness the contradictions, ask questions and experience the multiplicity of this space. Through multimedia works, light sculptures, performances, sound installations, ‘Tunnel Vision’ invites you to explore artworks inspired by the Anthropocene, friendship, loneliness, borders, and the power of poetry.
