ART IN CONTEXT
EQUINOR ART PROGRAMME
The Equinor Art Collection is distributed in its entirety among the many Equinor offices and platforms around the world. The artworks on board the Aasta Hansteen platform will certainly make an impact on this offshore work-environment. The platform is named after the Norwegian painter, writer and early feminist, Aasta Hansteen (1824—1908). All artworks presented on the platform are created by contemporary women artists.

On commission by Equinor, Nina Ansten photographed all artworks on the Aasta Hansteen platform in their offshore surroundings. She also documented the crew whilst installing the artworks on board the platform.
