Louisiana - Per Kirkeby

Not long ago we went to Louisiana to see the exhibition by Per Kirkeby. We were trying to find out which painting we would choose if we were to bring one home. It was so difficult because the colors and the shapes off these large-scale paintings were so striking.

Went to Sweden and saw this amacing world. In 1980 Lars Vilks starts building a sculpture at the nature reserve Kullaberg, in the northwest corner of county Skåne. A few days later the sculpture is being named "Nimis" or Ladonia. The 'project' has been going ever since and now it is the one of the most surprising monuments I have ever seen. Go there....and remember to wear hiking boots.

No more dummy

Bror said goodbye to his beloved dummies last week. Hung them all on the 'dummy tree' in Frederiksberg Have. No problems sleeping at night, maybe it was his parents that was nervous the most.
Went for the best 'autum' walk afterwards.
