Lisbeth Eugenie Christensen

05.02.22 – 08.05.22

Lisbeth Eugenie Christensen
transforms the first floor of the White Mansion into a ‘cabinet of curiosities’, featuring a large collection of works on paper in all shapes and sizes. They are displayed in a kind of salon-style hang, which generously underscores the noble character and neoclassical style of the exhibition rooms. The neoclassicism is a consistent feature of the building’s architecture and particularly prominent in the richly decorated interior, characterised by white-painted panels, windows, doors and framed light.

New Ceramic Sculptures in the Park

The artist duo Claydies have created three, new, ceramic ‘selfie’ objects for the Augustiana Art Park. They were accompanied by the exhibition En Claydies Affære (A Claydies Affair) in the White Mansion. The newl, selfie-inspired, outdoor works are based on the history of Augustiana, particularly the flamboyant princess and dowager duchess, Louisa Augusta, who lived in the White from 1815 to 1843.

These works by Claydies explore the ‘selfie’ concept and the relationship between viewer and work. Thereby, they spotlight the penchant for self-promotion and the Instagram culture of our time.

Come and visit the Art Park and take a selfie with one of the three ceramic sculptures!

THE BIRDS HAVE LANDED IN THE PARK

The group of sculptures is the latest addition to the Art Park’s collection of artworks.

In early 2020, Mia Line exhibited her group of sculptures, Head Digger, Dusty, Musty, Musky at Augustiana Art Gallery. She has now recreated the three identical-looking Ibis birds in different poses in an outdoor, 3D-printed version.

AUGUSTIANA ART PARK

There are several sculptures in the Augustiana Art Park. You can find their location on our map.

The park is open 24 hours a day and worth a visit at any time of the year. The spacious grounds, situated between the palace and the fjord, feature some distinctive works, rare trees and shrubs, and a breathtaking view of Augustenborg Fjord.
