This exhibition explores artworks from the museum's collection in a span from the 19th century until today, depicting sceenerisfrom Svalbard in the North to Japan in the East. The works are in dialogue with Svein Flygari Johansen's three videos in the exhibition "Craked": The Mountain, The Waterfall and Rift, which are all related to the nature.

Artists have through all times been concerned with nature and portrayed it in various ways. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the nature was often perceived as wild and magnificent, at a time when it was more untouched by humans. Today, many people are worried that humans are  causing climate changes and what the consequences may be.

The title of the exhibition is taken from Tomasz Boncza Ozdowski's work Watch Out - an Angry Stone, which shows a stone placed in a cage, in a construction created by humans.
