The last days I’ve been at Kirsten Kjær’s Museum in North Jutland in order to attend the opening of the exhibition “Strong Women” on the occasion of Constitution Day and the celebration of 100 years of women’s suffrage on June 5. and to participate in a 3 day workshop with 20 colleagues from KKS (Female Artists’ Society).
The place’s organized around a collection of art works by painter Kirsten Kjaer (especially her portraits) the whole estate exudes her spirit. Here’s a motley variety of side galleries with changing exhibitions, koncert hall, artist residences, guest house(s) as well as studios for graphics and sculpture (bronce casting) used by a variety of groups and individual artists. A broadminded and unique setting, great for an informal and mutual inspiring collegial networking and togetherness – in the workshop as well as at the meals and coffee breaks around the kitchen table.
I did some experiments mixing pressed plants with colografi (cardboard printing). So super exciting – and definitely something I want to take further. The prints turned out well – and so did the cardboard plates, I printed from. Would’t be surprised if they end up as an artists’ book.
