Horsens Art Museum organises art performance and Easter competition

For the second year in a row, Easter will be a challenging time for families. While we used to be able to come together and celebrate, we now have no other choice but to keep our distance for the safety of ourselves, our loved ones and our communities.

Knowing this, Horsens Municipality in Denmark has done its best to ensure that Easter celebrations can take place this year – albeit in a somewhat different way. Although Horsens Art Museum is still closed due to the pandemic, it has collaborated with local artist Phuc Van Dang who will perform on 1 April, Maundy Thursday, from 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00.  

The performance will ensure the safety of viewers as the artist’s work will be visible from outside the museum.

Tape street art

Phuc Van Dang will create tape street art inspired by the museum’s history. This form of art originated in the 80s when graffiti artists decided to opt for tape rather than spray cans. Using tape is seen as easier and more convenient since it does not leave paint stains. Moreover, it is ideal for temporary installations.

Generally, Phuc Van Dang’s art explores the themes of culture, background and history. Taking this further, his technique reflects the human experience as he uses a single, unbroken line to tell his stories. More importantly, he does not make corrections – even if he makes a mistake.

Easter egg competition

To celebrate Easter this year, the Horsens Art Museum has organised a competition in addition to the art performance. More specifically, it has invited the residents of Horsens to paint Easter eggs inspired by Phuc Van Dang’s work and themes. The most beautiful eggs will be used as decoration outside the Horsens Art Museum.

Easter eggs must be made from strong, white paper and decorated on both sides. To reiterate, they must be inspired by Phuc Van Dang’s artworks which are always created in black and white. If you are interested in taking part in the competition, deliver your egg, name, address, and phone number to the mailbox in Horsens Art Museum by Monday 29 April.
