From powerful paintings at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art to vibrant Copenhagen
Powerful paintings at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art! Adentity enjoyed an inspirational day together in Denmark, visiting the Swedish artist Mamma Andersson exhibition drawing inspiration from her colours and interpretation of Scandinavian nature and life. We also enjoyed some traditional Danish pastries and ate lunch by the glittering waters of Öresund. Then Copenhagen welcomed us at the end of the day with a vibrant city feeling as Denmark opened up lifting all remaining Covid restrictions. A day filled with inspiration, energy and joy!
Our first stop – a traditional Danish Bakery in Humlebæk
After jumping off the train in Humlebæk, we made our first stop at a traditional bakery nearby the train station to enjoy some Danish pastries. It was a great start to sit outside in the warm morning sun whilst enjoying coffee and pastries.
The glittering waters of Öresund
Below the edge of the museum lies the beautiful waters of Öresund. When looking out over the water’s edge we spotted an arty jetty made of concrete and wood. The Louisiana surroundings interact harmoniously with the art inside it, creating a perfect place to gather inspiration.
The Swedish artist Mamma Andersson inspires with nature
We visited the exhibition of the Swedish artist Karin Mamma Andersson (Born 1962 in Luleå). She ranks as one of the most important painters of her generation. Classical painting is at the heart of Mamma Andersson’s work, however, Mamma Andersson has developed a personal take on the classical genres of painting, by using a sharp sense of mood, colour, and materials. Still lifes, interiors and landscapes are at the centre of her creations, made with powerful colours and a distinctive rawness. She works with layers and combinations of materials, which creates richness and depth. There are also small stories and references hidden in the paintings which create interest and something unexpected for the viewer. The exhibition is a mix of new pieces made especially for the occasion, and gathered artwork from different places around the world, for instance The Little Sister II, that is displayed in Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Copenhagen – A day when everything opened up
We then headed for Copenhagen by train. It was a sunny and vibrant Copenhagen that welcomed us with a hubbub of movement and people on the go. We started with drinks at the historical and colourful Gråbrødretorv that dates back to the 13th century. The square provided a great atmosphere and feelings of joy as this was the day Denmark opened up after lifting the Covid-19 restrictions. You can read more about Louisiana and the exhibitions here.
