Visitor hall Fjordenhus
Fjordenhus (Fjord House) is the first building designed by artist Olafur Eliasson and his team of architects at Studio Olafur Eliasson. The building serves as the headquarters for KIRK KAPITAL A/S, which commissioned the project. Fjordenhus is a contemporary Gesamtkunstwerk, or ‘total work of art’, and incorporates many site-specific artworks by Eliasson as well as specially designed furniture and lighting. To date, it is Olafur Eliasson’s biggest work of art.
Sometimes less is more
The exhibition is located below sea level. The raw concrete walls and industrial lighting create a cool and authentic look. In addition to sorting and selecting from all the exhibits and documentation for the construction, Lulu Mosquito also wrote all the texts. The copy is printed on thick acrylic sheets mounted directly on the wall. The pictures are displayed in beautiful, black wooden frames, and various objects are exhibited in simple showcases on the walls. Basic, beautiful and honest in all its simplicity. Sometimes, less really is more.
Lulu Mosquito was commissioned to create a permanent exhibition in the basement at Fjordenhus. The idea of the exhibition is to document the building process, the numerous challenges and the thoughts behind the artworks, and to provide a timeline covering the 10 years it took to build Fjordenhus. The exhibition is open to the public, but it is necessary to book a guide.
