ASYL

An exhibition by Marie Jagd

The 23rd of Marts – the 27th of April 2018
Opening Friday the  23rd of March @ 16-20.

The exhibition is open Monday to Friday 10 – 17 untill the 27th of April 2018.

With an original window from the castle ‘Næsseslottet’ as a starting point, Marie Jagd investigates the window and its view both as a metaphor and a specific building component. 
The word Asyl [asylum] derives from Greek and means sanctuary. In 1984 Næsseslottet was the first Danish asylum under the Red Cross. As a consequence of the Islamic revolution in 1979 and the war between Iran and Iraq 48 Iranian refugees came to Denmark. That was a big number at the time and after a period of abandonment and decay the castle was adapted to an asylum in one night.

The exhibition is made at The Danish Art Workshops with support by Den Hielmstierne-Rosencroneske Stiftelse, Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond and Rudersdal Kommune.

Thanks to Peter Jensen and Broncestøberiet.
