PLEASE DO TOUCH

Tid: Feb. 3 - June 10, 2018
Sted: The Johannes Larsen Museum

Experience an exhibition created by sculptor Lars Abrahamsen og by author/poet Eske K. Mathiesen.

Lars Abrahamsen feels strongly that sculpture is a sensory kind of art, that also needs to be experienced through your hands. Therefore, all the works of art in the show may be touched. This aspect is beautifully described  by Eske K. Mathiesen in a poem composed especially for Lars Abrahamsen’s sculptural universe:

At museums and places like that,
you’re not allowed to touch.
“Do not touch!” it says on a sign,
and outside, “Please do not walk on the grass.”
But Lars Abrahamsen’s sculptures
are asking to be touched,
like you would stroke your beloved.
The deck of a ship.
A cake.
A wild goose.
Or an okapi.

Try it!

This exhibition includes  smaller, new sculptures in stone and plaster by Lars Abrahamsen, combined with words and poems by Eske K. Mathiesen.
