49 landscapes, 73 beards and the Skinned Head of a Young Bull
I was invited to participate in an exhibition at the National Gallery of Denmark, called ‘MIX IT UP’ where my contribution came in the form of a book presenting data from their collection.
The publication 49 landscapes… is based on a long series of countings and registrations of motifs, artist biographies and other metadata – from the number of cats and dogs, to how many dead queens there can be found in the artworks.
This book is not based on art history or theory, but simply an admiration of beautiful paintings. This is a tribute – a layman’s way of categorising art.
