Lier Psychiatric Hospital in Norway has a long history as an institution. The massive buildings house the memory of a grim chapter in Norwegian psychiatric history the authorities would rather forget. There is little available information about the former activities at Lier Hospital, but it is documented experiments that were carried out on this Norwegian mental hospital in the postwar period from 1945 to 1975. Its about the use of LSD, electroshock, brain research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and drug research sponsored by major pharmaceutical companies. It is perhaps not surprising that they try to forget this place and the events taking place here.
Lier Psyciatric Hospital was built in 1926 and had room for nearly 700 patients at the most. In 1986, many of the buildings were closed and abandoned and they still stand empty to this day. Some of the buildings are still in operation today for psychiatric patients.

Direct UV-Print on Brushed Aluminium – Pure elegance with an exclusive BUTLERFINISH® look. During production of the cover sheet, the surface is ground horizontally to produce a brushed effect. The result is eye-catching: The areas of the photograph that are white or very light are not printed, but instead take on the appearance of the brushed aluminium surface.
The direct UV-print is colour-fast, light-resistant, and even damp-proof. The artwork on brushed aluminium Dibond is therefore not only suitable for indoor areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen, but also for covered outdoor areas protected from rain and direct sunlight. The aluminium Dibond backing is extremely light, and the practical hanging system ensures it is easy to hang on the wall, even with large formats. Simply unpack the artwork, hang it up, and enjoy its floating, metallic effect on your wall.
