#VærkDinVerden
Concret and neonlight becomes one at night

In Ringe city, is the artwork Termini, a big bombastic and beautiful bench made out of concrete by the artist and architect Poul Ingemann. The youngsters use the bench at night as meetingpoint. This has inspired the artist Christian Elovara Dinesen to perform the bench with LED-light, so it lights up in the dark. The performance is done in co-lab with the youngsters from Fåborg-Midtfyns production-school. Together they have tuned the bench, themselves and their rides in a magical way. The contrast between the classic bench and the futuristic techno light is both funny and strong, and creates new life to the art-bench in Ringe. In November the final party will stand, with a massive city performance and a techno party with brezzers and loud bass.

#VærkdinVerden is an exhibition taking shape as a campaign. It runs throughout November 2018 in 7 cities in Denmark and on social medie. The aim of the campaign is to bring art into everyday life and engage the recipients in an eye-leveled conversation about its affect and value.

The main vision of #VærkdinVerden is to bring increased attention to art in public space, and provide a framework that generates numerous perspectives and stories on the art that surrounds us. 8 artists produce new art works for the exhibition involving short some-videos, performances, parties, apps, encouragements, interventions, modified and new statements on art, and a lot more. Each artwork will enter in to dialogue with 7 existing public art sites across Denmark and be produced in collaboration with its users.

The 8 participating artists are: Tanja Nellemann Poulsen, Christian Elovara Dinesen, Kristoffer Akselbo, Charlotte Haslund-Christensen, Jacob Tækker, Within Walls, Jens & Morten og Lars Arrhenius.

The 7 public art sites are: A school, a hospital, a park, a town, a village, a residential area and a train station. The sites a chosen as 7 examples of how art can be part of everyday spaces, and

#VærkdinVerden happens November 1 to November 30, 2018.

What would a work of art tell us if it could speak?  As part of the process of creating #VærkdinVerden, artist Jacob Tækker has made a workshop together with a 7th grade at Frederiksbjerg School in Aarhus. In this little stop motion created by the youngsters together with Jacob the students let a tennis ball go for a walk around the school so that we get a guided tour with the ball. What we are introduced to is as a building-integrated work of art by artist Rose Ekén. Her work hides around the school disguised as things we know from our everyday lives: capsules, a suspended jacket, milk boxes, a diet and a birthday party, the objects are shaped in iron and painted so that they look like something we know – until we get up close and discover that they are different.
