During the spring lockdown I created ten models in porcelain with the titel “Architectural Fruits”. The models are part of the group show “The Art of Giving” at Sirin Gallery in Copenhagen running from the 11/11 untill the 22/12 2020.

“Architect Simon Hjermind Jensen has designed two pendants, which create atmosphere. The pendants are handmade in porcelain and fired, so they evoke a special glow when the light flows through them. The pendants are asymmetrical, and together with the warm light, they add personality and presence to the room.
The character and appearance of the lamps reflects Simon Hjermind Jensen’s other work with form and structure, where he creates relationships with – and between people, form and place.”

Balancing Domes

Workshop for Munkeruphus with 4th grade primary students from Gilbjergskolen, Gilleje.

48 students made 45 architectural models. Here are 10 of the models.

We worked with the constructional strength of the curve, the use of gravity to balancing weight and we talked about housing/habitation with inspiration from the trees. Each student made a “Balancing Dome” and we also experienced how to create individual variety and identity within a concept.

Meet at the Observatory during the Corona virus!

The Observatory has shown to be a great place to meet during the Corona crisis. It is a well ventilated space and six people can sit on the bench while keeping the social distance on 2 meter between them. And because of the great acoustic it is still very easy to hear each other. Light a bonfire and keep it warm and cosy.
The Observatory is free of charge and open 24-7. Remember to bring your own fire wood.
The photo with Rhoda and Mikkel from Studio ThinkingHand is taken by curator Line Kjær form Munkeruphus during a meeting for the upcoming exhibition with Studio ThinkingHand. Due to the Corona crisis you will be able to book your own time in the exhibition. For more info please look at www.munkeruphus.dk
