Cherish – installation in Marmorkirke

Browsing through Instagram at the weekend I saw a number of people posting about a cherry blossom installation in Marmorkirke, close to Kongens Nytorv. It look like just the antidote to the early autumn blahs of unpredictable weather and dark mornings.

I have to say the pictures I saw before I went and, if I’m honest, my ones here, do not do it justice. The interior of the church (with the largest church dome in Northern Europe, I do believe) is always breathtaking but the addition of these beautiful and peaceful pink flowers elevates this. 

Cherish is an installation from an art PhD student from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Veronica Hodges, who has used 14,000 paper flowers as a comment on climate change (you can read more here in Danish)

The installation will be in place until 21 October and is open during Kulturnatten on Friday 12 October.

But for now I will let the flowers do the talking…

And a little video
