Catherine Fairweather featured Pelorus’ luxurious art experience in the Lofoten Islands as one of the best art trips to take.
“Tucked inside the Arctic circle in this rugged community of cod fishermen, you wouldn’t expect to find Caribbean-like white-sand beaches or cutting-edge art collections. KaviarFactory is a private museum of edgy and provocative contemporary art housed in a gleaming cube squatting on the waterfront of the picturesque town of Henningsvaer.
Bespoke dinners can be organised in the private appartment on the top floor and in the couple’s nearby picture-book-gorgeous restored lighthouse, while a charming wooden boathouse plus sauna, used to house artists-in-residence, is available to rent on request. No artwork can truthfully compete with the views, however – both from the lighthouse and framed in the floor-to-ceiling windows of KaviarFactory, looking out over the fishing boats, mercurial skies, pewter seas and jagged teeth of the snow-capped mountains beyond.”
