Kolonien III, August 2019

The piece, a fountain sculpture, conveys the enjoyment connected to keeping an allotment gar- den as well as the activities associated with it. The sculpture is embellished with castings and motifs of such things as hammer and nails, lush leaves, eroded birds and stones collected at beaches in Denmark and abroad.

We are located at Solbærstien 36, Rødovre, in Stoffer’s garden where he will be showing a piece as well.

The art association KOLONIEN is comprised of 11 artists and curators who live in their allotments in Rødovre during most of the summer. This is the third time KOLONIEN transforms the allotment gardens into an alternative exhibition space which in turn becomes a part of the life and community of the allotment gardens.

Sommerhuskolonien ABC, Rødovre. Stikkelsbærstien 26, Rødovre, 2610 Rødovre.

Opening August 17th-September 3rd, 2019
