Heracles and Hydra/Thor and Jörmungandr

Art in the shared space, 2014

Among the front-line fighters for the unbribable artist is Terese Nielsen, director of the Art Museum of Vejen and Hans Jacobsen, a man who was himself a tireless fighter. When they ask for a gate, they get a gate according to the sampling culture of our time. Saint Georg with the Dragon, Hercules with the Hydra, Thor with the Midgard Serpent – and thus the whole of our cultural heritage has probably been sampled.
