The launch of Art of Fundamental Rights will be on November 19th 17-20 pm at Byens Plantetorv, Refshalevej 167D – Port 33, 1432 Copenhagen
In the beginning of 2020 I began conversations with GEUS The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland about working together on an art installation project based on their mappings of the seabed. With the reopening of society we have now started the project. GEUS is a research and advisory institution in The Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities.
I am participating in the art project Art of Fundamental Rights organised by the Danish NGO Nyt Europa (New Europe). The project aims to highlight EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights. I’m interpreting the chapter of Dignity. The art works will tour to European cities in 2021- 2022.
200 young people from schools and courses in Nakskov participated in the project Nature, Landscape – Paper. They spent the day at Trappegalleriet beginning with conversations about the human interventions in other parts of nature and landscape in relation to the art works on show. After the initial conversations in the gallery we continued to work outside, making performative exercises in ‘Indrefjorden’ centered on elements of nature. Finally the young people participated in two workshops, sculpting in paper pulp and drawing.
The project was supported by The Danish Arts Foundation, Lolland City Council and Trappegalleriet.
