The work at Trekroner

Mette Winckelmann: HERFRA VI STÅR, 2019. Trekroner, Roskilde.

Mette Winckelmann has started the process creating her artwork HERFRA VI STÅR on site in Trekroner, Roskilde. The coming six months, the artwork, will take its shape while the new residents move into their apartments by the lake. The work of art has been created specifically for the site with a focus on both the landscape and the building materials of the place and in close cooperation with the builders and the architect. Hence the artwork naturally intertwine into many different places in the relatively large area and becomes an included part of the site. The work consists of a large number of circular shapes twenty-one in all, which assumes various forms and functions such as a multi-course for ball games, a sensory garden, seating furniture, asphalt pavements, a sundial and an observatory. All parts of the artwork are found in common areas where forms and are public sites for gathering, contemplation and being together.  The various elements connect the close community to the great cosmic community to which the patterns of the different circles refer.
