Decorating the canteen
The New Carlsberg Foundation has chosen visual artist Kaspar Bonnén to decorate the school canteen with a large work he will create specifically for this space. The canteen is also the school’s official entrance.
“I have been working with spaces, interiors, and what constitutes spaces for many years. My main interest has been the way our surroundings become part of our lives and landscapes. This means the paintings turn into a kind of mental landscapes and maps of our inner spaces,” Kasper Bonnén explains.
“I’m curious about the way we occupy many different spaces at one and the same time, and about how we today live our lives inside an increasingly complex space.”
The sketching process has already begun, and Bonnén’s work is expected to be completed later this year.
Decorating the project rooms
Apart from the canteen, the New Carlsberg Foundation will be responsible for decorating the school’s five project rooms with works created by different artists.
When all the works of art are in place, an official inauguration of the works of art in the building will be held.
