Installation process

The installation took place on June 1st and lasted between 9am to almost 4pm. All of us were exhausted, but happy. The prints arrived safely and in full set. We were also very happy with the quality of the prints and the way they were produced – bigger pieces, but it meant smaller amount and less screws on them. The Metro people did such a good job with the installation! Great people with amazing sense of humor!

Overall it was both scary and relieving to see them go up there and be open to the public and somewhat vulnerable. We hope you’ll take good care of them!

See you today at the opening – 17.00, Politikens Boghal

 

The wall is ready

It’s only five days until the official opening of the exhibition. We are super excited about it and we hope to see many of you this upcoming Friday, June 3rd at 17.00 at the Politiken Boghal.

The wall is ready for us. The question is – are we ready for the wall? We will see that on Wednesday. In case you’re as curious as we are – join us on June 1st for the day, when the installation will go up this wall!

The first part of our project will be exhibited as an installation on the Metro’s construction’s wall -City Hall Square. This is definitely the largest installation that we have ever been part of – we take over the whole wall, which is 4 meters high and 50 meters long, from top to bottom!

The oversized portraits, accompanied by a narrative, will be there from the 3rd of June 2016 until end of December 2016.

We are really looking forward to seeing you on June 3rd for the opening of this bizarre project!

Byens Hegn

“Indvielsen | den danske stamme” is to be shown on Byens Hegn on Rådhuspladsen.

Indeed, as some kind of gigantic trailer, the first four portraits of “Indvielsen” are to be shown in an over-sized version on the 4 meters high wall surrounding the Copenhagen Metro construction on the City Hall Square from June 3rd!

Project updates

Today we finally got around to work on the images. It is not that easy to figure out all the details, since it is rather special. The planned installation will take over one whole stretch of the construction wall around the future Metro station nearby the City Hall in Copenhagen. It’s dimensions are 4 meters high and 50 meters long. It is by far the largest project that I have done previously. We are happy that Andrea Landi is helping us out with this task. And we are looking forward to seeing the result.
