A Homage to Langeland
In this Art Tower you can find a work made from items that represent different aspects of Langeland's nature. The artistic universe created in the tower is built around a group of mystical and mythical beings, gathered around a standing female figure.
Sabine Jensen describes her tower as follows:
”My tower is a love letter to Langeland’s nature, with its fallow deer, seatrout, cranes and elven folk. The Danish writes H. C. Andersen, Grundvig og Kaj Munkwere also bewitched by this beautiful island. Kaj Munk even wrote a poem, which I have hung in the gallery. He wrote:
How beautiful you are, you island of Sun and Peace
with vines and roses that catch my foot,
so fertile, there is barely room
for all your riches, that you pile around you.”
- Sabine Jensen
