Everyone is welcome!
It is well known that Johannes Larsen lived and worked in Kerteminde, where he could see out his window to the magnificent, fertile garden and to the sea, as his closest neighbours! He was surrounded by grand and varied nature, and it was to a high degree fundamental for his work. Nature is the motif, the daily motif is nature.
But what is the situation with artists today? Contemporary artists? Do artists who live and work close to nature allow their environment to inspire and affect them to such a great degree?
In the exhibition “NATURE - Home & Workplace”, we explore whether there is a connection between the reflections of contemporary artists about living and working in nature, and that which is expressed in their concrete works of art.
The exhibition has a special focus on Greenland, Iceland, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. It is comprised of artists who are highly recognized for their artistic work, not only in their own countries but internationally, and with many exhibitions at home and abroad. In addition, they have received prizes and commendations for their innovative and original artistic expression. They show us a many-sided Nordic region, where younger, internationally recognized, contemporary artists consciously choose to live close to nature, out in the country as Alhed and Johannes Larsen did!
