+SKETCHES FOR FRIENDS HE LOST AT SEA+
Henrik Lund Jørgensen takes up the subjects and compositions of some of Michael Ancher’s most well-known works: Vil Han Klare Pynten (1880), Mandskab Reddet (1894) and Den Druknede (1896). The paintings is a re-enacted in the manner of a tableau vivant, however with refugees from other countries taking the place of the fishermen. By having “boat people“ play the part of the heroic Skagen fishermen, the artist takes Ancher’s paintings into the scope of the present with references to photojournalism, renewing questions about escape and rescue, emigration and social responsibility.
