P.V. Jensen-Klint the Master Builder
28 January – 12 March
Jensen-Klint was an uncompromising, multi-talented artist – a new thinker who
led the way to breakthroughs in architecture and furniture design.
Jensen-Klint was not just the man
behind some remarkable buildings; he also designed the renowned Le Klint lamp
shades. And aside from that, he stood for a considerable amount of furniture
production and created a wide range of ceramic and graphic artworks.
More than drawings & models
The Jensen-Klint exhibition forms a
detailed picture of his professional life through furniture, ceramics, poster
art, book covers and other graphic works. But the nucleus of the exhibit focuses
on the architect Jensen-Klint, with neat ink drawings of his houses, public
buildings and five churches – most notably, Grundtvigs Kirke in Copenhagen. It
also encompasses wooden models, ecclesiastical furnishings and photos by Ole
Meyer that reveal new angles of Jensen-Klint’s mastery in building.
