LINE LIGHT STUDY

/ Sketches fra ‘Linjen – Lyset’, 1990

Sketches from the Line Light Study.

Exploring the line

The Line Light Sketches explore the line as a visual element together with the characteristic landscape of Jutland with its sea, sand, light and the more than 6000 bunkers left along the west coast from the Second World War. The sketches deal with tensions between culture and nature, science and history as well as the remarkable architectural heritage of the bunkers in the landscape. The study became the outset for the later work Peace Sculpture 1995 that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Liberation of Denmark.
