Exhibition wins price

15. November 2016 | The Johannes Larsen Museum

The Danish Arts Foundation Grant Committee for Crafts and Design has chosen to give a prize to the exhibition “Necessity” at the Johannes Larsen Museum.

The committee’s motivation includes the following:

“The works impress precisely and convincingly, as they enter into an engaging interaction with the architecture. Johannes Larsen’s home and studio are full of ceramics and crafts, and “Necessity” initiates a different and renewed interpretation of these rooms and of the spirit of this exceptional museum - one sees both Johannes Larsen’s birds and Ulrik Plesner’s building with new eyes.”

“We are very glad for this recognition from the Danish Arts Foundation, which first and foremost is praise for the three artists, Bodil Manz, Erling Christoffersen and Gudrun Pagter, whose combined works have created a fantastic exhibition at our museum,” says Mette Ladegaard Thøgersen, head curator of the Johannes Larsen Museum.
