For the first time, Dinesen Home opens to the public. It happens during this year’s design event 3daysofdesign, where the temporary exhibition ‘HJEM’ (’HOME’) unfolds in the setting of Dinesen’s flat in the heart of Copenhagen.
A huge ball of yarn made up of tablecloths, a lone, unravelled chair and a raw plank penetrated by wooden posts in an alcove. These are some of the intriguing works you can see in the exhibition ‘HJEM’, where familiar products from Fritz Hansen, Georg Jensen Damask and Dinesen have been interpreted by artist Pernille Egeskov in a living total installation.
Pernille Egeskov takes an in-depth look, exploring both the raw materials and the making of the products, which she translates into original takes on family relations and life rituals in the setting of the home. Georg Jensen Damask, Republic of Fritz Hansen and Dinesen are all natural elements in the home: tablecloths and furniture that are passed down as heirlooms and wooden floors that last for generations – silent witnesses to the big and small events that make up our lives.
The works extend through six of the rooms in the flat in a powerful and poetic story about the cyclical aspect of life, where the festive and the sombre assume concrete form as images of the passing of time and the fleeting nature of life.
The exhibition in Dinesen Home is open the following days:
THURSDAY 26 MAY, 11 am – 6 pm
FRIDAY 27 MAY, 11 am – 6 pm
SATURDAY 28 MAY, 10 am – 4 pm
Admission is free.
