The coast of northern Sjælland contains a host of stories. Tales of medieval monks, attracted artists, royal hunting grounds, escaping across the Øresund strait, spectacular landscapes, architecture and beaches. Of the destiny of fates in specific sites.
Art House Without Walls has invited Anja Franke to curate the first Danish North Coast Art Triennial – Unknown Landscape on the coast of northern Sjælland. Anja Franck has invited 23 internationally renowned artists to share their perspectives on these landscapes that previously were unknown to them.
These artists participated in an Art Camp in spring 2015, in which they were introduced to Gribskov and drew inspiration from the landscapes, townscapes and related stories in Tisvildeleje, Gilleleje, Dronningmølle, Esrum and Villingerød. The results will be on display in Gribskov from 4 June to 1 November. Perhaps the numerous visitors will be able to draw even more new and diverse perspectives from a supposedly known landscape?
The artworks include video and sound installations, sculptures, photographs, paintings and performances, and visitors can experience them at some of Gribskov’s art and cultural institutions and in open landscapes. Guests are hereby invited to create an interesting Triennial route to encompass the many artworks. You decide how much and your pace.
