When living in LA we went to the Getty Center. The view from here is spectacular and I caught a car queue from the little Getty train…an everyday part of living in LA
belated flashback friday…problems with the computer but now up and running again. kødbyen – the meatpacking district of copenhagen. carlsberg “district”. spend 2 weeks in århus because of work. århus city hall designed by arne jacobsen and erik møller. went to aros and saw ron muecks “boy”. ron mueck worked on one of my favorite shows on tv when i was a kid: the storyteller…remember those stories…i thought they were super great but very scary at the same time. watched them recently again and still think they are really really good. and as well labyrinth with david bowie…a classic. saw the exhibition with tony matelli – a human echo and edward munch – angst/anxiety…interesting stuff. james turrells milkrun III…what magic. a handwritten what to do in århus note….pretty neat handwriting. the ocean.
a this & that post mixed with a little flashback friday. tintin on the loose. had breakfast at café blå lotus. a real good cup of coffee at coffice and yep their coffee did do magic. love the concept at coffice where you can get a coffee, work and book a room for meetings. went to färgfabriken to see an ceramic exhibition by sara möller and i thought it was oh so good. you can read more about the exhibit here. what a beauty. sankt johannes kyrka.
snapped these pictures last year when i went with my mom to the museum of modern art aalborg and we saw this beautiful exhibition with marc quinn (yep the guy who made a self-portrait out of his own blood)..a side note to this one. when going to louisiana to see the exhibit self-portraits back in january, marc quinns “self” was missing and i joked about it had melted….that was exactly what had happened i would later discover…or nearly. the cooling united had failed, but the curators acted fast and secured the piece..phew..living on the edge i would say…can you imaging calling marc…ahem..by the way your “self” just melted…no pond intended. anyways it was a great exhibit and im in love with the flower paintings especially the black and white with paint splatter. the matter into light was very powerful with real flames, i was so impressed with the real flames inside the museum. they showed a lot of his sculptures like zombie boy and alison lapper which are quite facinating with all their details. ending this flashback friday with this view from the hill behind my mom and dads house overlooking limfjorden. been standing here many times as a kid looking out onto the world.

went to statens museum for kunst and saw this piece by tomás saraceno cloud cities. some of the spheres are large enough to be entered by visitors…think that’s pretty amazing. the best coffee from kaffe og vinyl with great company. seeing the world through a kaleidoscope. our first and only snowman build this winter. the plan was to go to the zoo on christmas day with my parents but we all ended up going on a hike and some crazy tobogganing in mølle parken and brought home made glögg and vanilla christmas cookies… found a recipe for glögg at food52. more good days spend in skagen. outdoor lunch. for the love of succulents. det grå fyr (the grey lighthouse) in skagen is denmarks second highest lighthouse and very pretty i must say.
did the food styling for this shoot. had a great day with bitchslap magazine. it was so much fun with the matching.
gleaming lights of the souls by the dotted queen yayoi kusama. went to an exhibition with her in nyc at the whitney…amazing. the love of neon signs. a date with my man. awesome birthday cake. decoration. eremitagen. me in my russian winter attire at jægersborg dyrehave….it’s getting really cold. what a beautiful fellar!
