Rolling gallery-wall through town
August 15 // 11:00 - 14:00
Imagine standing at your kitchen window looking out, and there is a wall of art rolling past, or you’re out shopping and pass a great gallery-wall in the middle of town. This you can experience when the project “A Gallery-wall” makes a stop in Kgs. Lyngby.
A white wall about 4 metres wide will be drawn through the Danish landscape on wheels. The project starts in Copenhagen and ends in Aalborg. On its way through Denmark, the wall will exhibit works from artists living in the municipalities and towns the gallery-wall visits.
Artist Jeppe Eisner
In Kgs. Lyngby you will be able to see works from Jeppe Eisner who is a self-taught painter, and who’s subject universe often evolve around the world of circuses, theatres, amusement parks and sports grounds. Eisner has also made posters for among others Save the Children, Bakken Amusement Park, Circus Arena and has made the opera poster for Sophienholm.
November each year, the same day the Hubertus Hunt in the Deer Park (Dyrhaven) is held, Jeppe Eisner has an exhibition in his atelier.
A chance to meet local artists in the middle of town
” The rolling gallery-wall” will be filled with works from different artists such as Jeppe Eisner. The purpose of the wall is for the people in town to meet local artists – and is for the people who miss art, for those who art normally doesn’t reach and for those who think it isn’t for them. At the same time the project is connecting people across the nation, as the exhibition moves through Denmark.
