Remembering the origins of modern Denmark.
The Frihedsstøtten (Liberty Column) at Vesterbrogåde is a 20 meter tall obelisque, erected in memory of the peasant reforms of 1788, which led to the abolition of the "Stavnsbånd" (serfdom).
The four symbolic female figures on top of the column symbolise Bravery, Civic Virtue, Fidelity and The Industrious Cultivation of Land.
After a huge renovation, in 1999 the Obelisque and the four statues were replaced by exact copies.
#CarstenHoller will have another solo exhibition later this month at #CopenhagenContemporary in Denmark !
‘Reproduction’ will examine the theme of ’reproduction’, adopting an approach which is at once scientific and artistic. Reproduction starts with cell division, and it is precisely the principle of division that underpins his immersive installation in CC’s large Hall 1. The hall is transformed into a large biology-based playscape where, for example, we are encouraged to crawl through the pips of a die, and where slow-moving merry-go-rounds and corridors of mirrors affect our sensory perceptions. The second part of the exhibition deals with the way in which our behaviour is encoded by regulatory mechanisms already in infancy, and how childhood memories are stored in the brain. The exhibition focuses on reproduction, for better or for worse, and nature’s amazing ability to perpetually create and recreate itself.
In two of its largest halls, #CC will present a major solo exhibition by one of the most important contemporary artists in the world: #CarstenHoller . CC’s exhibition is born of an unusual partnership with #Kunsten in Aalborg, which presents a parallel solo exhibition by #CarstenHoller . The double exhibition will provide guests with a unique opportunity to experience one of the biggest names in the global art scene through a wide selection of works ranging from some of his early pieces to new site-specific installations.

Это самый старый парк Европы, история которого начинается с конца 19 века. Не исключено, что один из самых известных сказочников мира Г.Х.Андерсон черпал свое вдохновение, гуляя по дорожкам парка. Датчане утверждают, что именно Тиволи вдохновил Уолта Диснея на создание легендарного Дисней-ленда) В котором, кстати, я ещё не была) Так сказать, книгу прочитала - теперь можно и фильм посмотреть 😁🙌🏻 ⠀ #tivoligardens#copenhagen#denmark#denmark 🇩🇰 #summervibes#summer2019#summertimesadness
@rawmeyn- This arch was about 30m (98ft) tall. That’s considered small for Greenland 🇬🇱. We’ve been on the very southern tip of the country were not many icebergs are. On the next day we watched it breaking apart. As icebergs melt, they leak nutrients into the ocean around them. Water surrounding icebergs teems with plankton, fish, and other sea life. We saw a whale in that bay later the same day… 🐋 #North photo by @rawmeyn
Adapting from a single institution to a small city, Frederiksvej Kindergarten consists of 11 clustered buildings. The simple design is inspired by a traditional children's playhouse, aiming to create architecture that is comprehensible in the eyes of a child.

summer memories 💫 so far, 2019 has been an adventure. It’s been a year of exploring, of pushing my own boundaries and daring to look beyond, starting to build a carreer, making decisions. 2019 has been a year of asking questions and finding answers. Questions about faith, my path and what role in society I want to play. It’s been a year of building relationships and letting go. Never have I learned to much and yet felt so clueless. But I guess that’s what makes life interesting and keeps us growing even when we’re grown.
