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…

Copenhagen Cooking 2015

I was feeling pretty tired yesterday after the shock to the system of getting up super early to get my son to school – after arriving forty minutes early, it is a relief not to have to get up so early from now on. So today, in lieu of a proper post and I promise there are some good ones coming next week, i thought I would flag up an exciting forthcoming event happening in Copenhagen between 21 and 30 of August.

Copenhagen Cooking offers a program of exciting culinary events including workshops, street dinners, events for kids and families and exciting and unique dinners in some fabulous locations The great thing is that some of which are free and it is happening all over the city. I have marked a few things I would like to do such as a behind the scenes look at Østergro, a New Nordic cooking course offered in English, a visit to an Italian market in the city centre and a coffee tasting. I am sure there is something you fancy happening during the week so why not pop over to their website and get planning!
