Gold frames at Funen’s Head

Tid: Until October 22
Sted: Fyns Hoved

Gold frames in the landscape spotlight the artists at Funen Head.

The fantastic natural setting at Funen Head has been a favoured motif in Danish art since the 1870’s. Most well known are Fritz Syberg’s many paintings and watercolours of his family’s simple life at the water’s edge during the summer months from 1902-10.

The museum’s exhibition of gold frames at chosen spots on Funen Head will remain until the end of the fall break (October 22). Through the frame you can see that bit of the landscape that a given artist chose as a motif for a painting.

A new look at nature

The point of the gold frames is to expand people’s experience of nature at Funen Head by connecting it with art. It will give visitors a new and artistic look at nature. At the same time,  it will give visitors a sense of dialogue with the works of art and with the past, through the meeting between artwork and nature. There is also an app for your mobile phone that connects art and nature experiences and makes the artists’ motifs relevant for present-day visitors at Funen Head.
