A PERMANENT SCULPTURAL INSTALLATION FOR CAMPUS HOLMEN, 2012
The art work, Alphabet City, consists of 23 sculptures in stone, steel and wood. The individual sculptures, all shaped as letters from the alphabet, are placed in the grass along the street in front of the Art Schools at Campus Holmen. The sculptures stretch themselves for approximately 200 meters along both side of the street. Together the letters spell an iconic sentence from popular culture. If you know your rock history, you will know, that the sentence is about a special place in the songwriter’s childhood. By singing this sentence he urges us not to forget those places. To decode the sentence you have to walk along the sculptures.
Campus Holmen contains Denmark’s most densely packed concentration of educational institutions dealing with the aesthetic disciplines.
