On February 23rd, The Nivaagaard Collection reveals the big and site-specific installation ‘Nature Morte’ consisting of real flowers created by the young English artist Rebecca Louise Law. Her beautiful and technically demanding installation reinterprets the 200-year-old flower paintings in the current exhibition on the Golden Age painter J.L. Jensen. The flowers from the painting’s surface expand in space and give a sensual and spatial art experience.
At J. L. Jensen’s time, only the female painters painted flower pictures, not having access to the Art Academy. Therefore J.L. Jensen was a popular teacher for a number of female private students. By exhibiting a successful female artist from our time, we send a greeting to former female artists, who most often have fallen into oblivion.
Rebecca Louise Law talks about her work of art and her passion for flowers. Her presentation takes place in English in conversation with museum inspector Maren Bramsen. After the conversation there will be a Q & A. The new and richly illustrated book by Rebecca Louise Law: ‘Life in Death’ will also be available for purchase at the museum shop. The installation can be experienced from February 23 until August 12, 2018. For more information visit The Nivaagaard Collection.
