House in Motion
Architecture and art have always had a close relationship. In the exhibition ‘House in Motion’ artist Jes Fomsgaard and architect Anders Abraham, together with the Danish Architecture Centre, explore the shared space between architecture and art.
NB: There's free entrance to the exhibition
On the walls you can see works of artist Jes Fomsgaard and the floor installation is by architect Anders Abraham.
Architecture and art have always had a close relationship - sometimes it's pure symbiosis other times a stormy affair and yet it's never boring.
In the exhibition House in Motion the works of artist Jes Fomsgaard and architect Anders Abraham come together for the first time. Abraham makes the very architectual and spatial works of Fomsgaard come alive in a series of installations inspired by Fomsgaard's paintings.
The exhibition also looks at the concrete meeting between architect and artist through a number of quotes by Abraham and Fomsgaard that illuminates their different opinions about the relationship between architecture and art.
