Easter 2017: Sand drawings at the Viking Ship Museum
Come and create a transient sand drawing - both for children and adults.
In collaboration with the Museum, artist and designer Helle Hove has developed an installation, which focuses on the playful and exploratory, where anything goes and nothing is trivial.
The artist will invite both children and adults to create sand drawings, inspired by the voyages and artistic ornamentation of the Vikings. "I find that Viking Age interlaced motifs exude an energy and a sense of joy in their creation, which I hope the Museum's guests will also experience themselves, when we experiment with sand drawings together", tells Helle Hove. She will let guests come in close contact with the artistic process by setting their own fingers in the sand in the nine sand-trays, which form the core of the installation.
