July 9, 2011

Read in my previous posts about the exhibition “Sculpture By The Sea”.

Here is my last post with photos from the exhibition:

Artist: Raquel Corona Justo (Mexico)

Title: Obsevando la fantasia

Statement: “The work invites us to reflect about how we can sit down and watch people in spaces”

Artist: Gangadhar Mahato (India)

Title: Inner expression

View of the next sculptures.

Artist:  Ulrik Lund & Bo Mølgaard  (Denmark)

Title:  Ælling (Le canard inquiétant)

Statement: “The mute swan is the national bird of Denmark, but a rare guest at the exhibition site. It has no vocal cord but it can hiss and displays strong territoral behavior (…)”.

Artist: Marcus Tatton (Australia)

Title: Quantum sequestion

Artist: Angela Corner (England)

Title: Rocking Lady

View along Strandvejen to the North. To the right you can see:

Artist: Kent Carlsson (Sweden)

Title: Spectacle agnostico

I hope you have the enjoyed this exhibition as much as I have…… 🙂

Note: The selection of works on this blog are my own, and I have quoted the artists’ statements from the exhibition catalogue, where I found that they could help illustrating the work.

    I think the last one is my favorite. Is that you reflected in the glass?

      It’s me – but certainly not the most lifelike portrait of me …

    Truels, you have some fine artists in Denmark. I’ve enjoyed your exhibit.. I like the duck in the water, what is it made out of?

    These are absolutely extraordinary pieces, Truels. And what a beautiful, beautiful environment. Thank you so much for sharing them with us like this.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and writing so fine comments 🙂

    Thanks for taking us on this tour through a very interesting exhibition. I wish I’d decided going there.
    In two years perhaps we can meet there for a cup of coffee and a photo walk?

      You will be so welcome – both to the exhibition – and to see much more, if you like. And drinks and food is included 😉

        I’ll get in touch when time comes.
        Until then your blog can send views and hints from Jutland.

    I think the top shot is my favourite of the lot – love the dangling legs that seem to disappear into the greenery.


    • July 18, 2011 8:50 pm

      I love this sculpture too – and was in doubt whether the perspective should be with the forest or the water in the background…

    These call could be the very best of the best you’ve shown! What a wonderful display of creativity and talent. How can one NOT love the giant glass swan?? 🙂


    • July 18, 2011 8:55 pm

      No, the swan was like something out of a fairy tale (though it is plastic!) In these environments and so light and airy – and yet VERY big!

    Some stunning sculptures. The ‘man’ with the ‘four’ eyes made me se with ‘blurry’ eyes as if I had four 🙂


    • July 19, 2011 6:23 pm

      I was totally confused looking at this statue – and have still the same feeling, when I look at the photos of him. Amazing how this work can manipulate with our brain!!!


      • July 29, 2011 6:34 am

        I feel the same – I can’t actually look at that statue’s head. It feels as though I need to re-align my glasses. Very disconcerting.

    The more you show of this exhibition, the more fantastic ! This “Rocking Lady” is just amazing. Even the tree in the background seems to bend its branches to have a closer look 😉 Wonderful exhibition and landscape, Truels, thanks a lot for bringing us along.


    • July 19, 2011 6:26 pm

      It seems like you (and others) are just as impressed by the works of these artists as I were. Great!!! 😉

    What an amazing exhibition. Thanks so much for sharing.

    The “Inner Expression” piece is hard to look at. I felt like I couldn’t focus my eyes. Did you get the same disoriented feeling looking at it in person.

    Glad I discovered your Blog. I’ll be back.

      Hello Sybil – I’m glad you stopped by and enjoyed the sculptures. In “Inner Expression” the artist has really managed to play with our perception.


  10. July 19, 2011 8:20 pm

    A lot of beautiful sculptures. You have done great pictures. Such places are unique.


    • July 19, 2011 8:45 pm

      Thank you for your comment, Hans. I hope the summer is more sunny and less wet in Norway than down here?!!!

    Wow. That is great and interesting post with awesome photos. Most of all I love “Quantum sequestion” photo. To me it is so cozy, because I see in it firewood, firewood for my fireplace. I have seen here somewhere same kind of heap on somebody’s courtyard. The owner dried up the firewood nearly that way for the winter.


  12. July 20, 2011 10:28 am

    The heap you have seen is probably like the on beside the blue chair on this page:
    But these were not heaps – but sculptures, where the wood was fixed on a circular frame 🙂


    • July 20, 2011 10:50 am

      Oh yeah, I see that it was something like that in Wikipedia. But this still causes to me a question: Did the artist see that heap in Internet and took the idea for his art work. 🙂

      Anyway it was a funny coincidence, because I was just today on my courtyard cutting and splitting firewood for winter!


      • July 22, 2011 6:39 pm

        Here in Denmark I have seen quite a lot of people making round wood-heaps like this (the one shown on Wikipedia) for their fire-wood, I do not know if the artists (Danes 😉 ) have been inspired by those?
        I have tried to make such a heap for my firewood to a couple of times, but it is difficult to make it both nice and steady at the same time!

    I really love the last shot. It’s like looking into another dimension.
