Art Playground Ordrupgaard
The works in the Art Playground are designed to encourage children and adults to use art in a freer way than is possible in the traditional museum space, and you are welcome to explore and run and hide in them! The Art Playground thereby represents a new and different museum experience.
The artworks will be carefully integrated into the landscape of the museum park during 2016-18. The launch of the first artwork, Vær i vejret (Weather the weather) by the internationally renowned Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson was celebrated with a tremendous garden party and was a brilliant success amongst the museum’s youngest visitors. The three other works, which will be created for the Art Playground over the coming two years, consist of a water pavilion by the Danish artist Jeppe Hein, a labyrinthine bamboo construction by the US artist duo Doug and Mike Starn, and a teahouse in the park’s treetops by the Japanese architect Terunobu Fujomori.
