I could not leave Denmark without visiting an outstanding place, where nature blends with art in a spectacular way: the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Just perfect for a bicycle ride, it’s located close to a cliff facing the beautiful Oresund coast.
Considered one of the most important modernist architecture creations of this country, the building complex simply becomes part of the environment. Its Sculptures Park exhibits interesting works from artists such as key Mono-ha’s member Nobuo Sekine, Henri Laurens, Joan Miró, Jean Arp, Henry Moore and Alexander Cader. I was also completely fascinated by the permanent installation of great Yayoi Kusama, called Geaming Lights of Souls, an amazing platform surrounded by a universe of changing lights that give you the feeling of being about to fall into the outer space.
As for temporary exhibitions, I had the fantastic change of discovering the drawing series on paper by David Hockney, an engaging walk along Yorkshire landscape. This little-known artistic facet reaffirms his undisputed talent for the multiple techniques he uses -either the more traditional charcoal drawings or new technologies like Brushes application for IPad.
Or The Enclave, an audio, video and photographic installation presented by award-winning Richard Mosse: An impressive work documenting the cruel civil war that has been ravaging the Republic of the Congo for several decades. Mosse escapes from traditional war documentary canons by using surveillance military infrared film that not only detects the invisible, but also transform the green and brown colours of nature into a fantastic bright pink palette. A sublime aesthetic of battlefields, soldiers, armed children, refugee camps and human suffering that inexorably calls for deep reflection.
A brilliant museum that should not be missed!
