The Tabernacle

Art in the shared space, 2018

After the People’s Meeting in 2017 I was invited to create a tent for the Carlsberg family for the People’s Festival in 2018. Based on a Konfutze quote, I modelled a 7 angular tent, which was immediately perceived as round, inscribed in an ellipse.

Since I have not thought about the scout tent as such except sporadically, I had to get hold of a professional, Poul Steen from Cirkus Panik. The collaboration with Poul Steen was now to transform the sculpture into a tent – creating the hybrid "sculpture tent". It was an enriching experience, like wandering in a functional sculpture.

The title of the tent is THE TABERNACLE.
