Special exhibition: HINDSHOLM. The island connected with the mainland
The Johannes Larsen Museum – with the subtitle “for art and nature” – has a special focus on the landscape and nature. Hindsholm, including Fyns Hoved, was a favorite motif among the Funen Painters, and especially Johannes Larsen and Fritz Syberg have found inspiration for many works on the northeastern Funen peninsula, and many of these can be experienced on Møllebakken.
Take part in a modern regional description of “Hindsholm. The island connected with the mainland”, when six camera artists give a contemporary take on the landscape, as significant parts of it today are man-made and – together with the architecture of the villages and the manor house – can in so far be considered a piece of collective aesthetics. The project thus puts the museum’s own collection and specifically the art of Funen painters into perspective. Threads are also drawn to the tradition from the Danish description of nature and people, which Achton Friis and Johannes Larsen created a hundred years ago.
The expanded concept of landscape, in which the human imprint plays a significant role, is also expected to provide space for some of the landscape’s residents, both people and their personal universes. Last but not least, the project highlights the development in a Danish outlying area, at the same time as the history, life, and moods on Hindsholm unfold in a captivating and magical way.
Hindsholm. Den landfaste ø ”has also been published as an independent book written and edited by Finn Thrane and published by Wunderbuch. Part of the edition will accompany the exhibition in a special museum edition.
