I´m not a church

But I use to be a church called Nikolaj. Now I´m Nikolaj the contemporary artcenter & I love it.

I live downtown Copenhagen & I am surrounded by amazing artmuseum-lucky me! I went to Nikolaj contemporary artcenter & the artist Mie Olise´s exhibition “The silent station” was on the menu.

Artist Mie Olise is educated at Central St. Martins in London & has a very impressive CV.

The artcenter kept the organ. It adds some soul to the place.

The trainstation was huge. And all over the big room you could hear a lot of different voices from a lot of different speakers. It was very much alive even though my friend & I were alone in there. It was supposed to reflect different people who were crossing paths. She combined reality with fiction. It was really cool & very complex.

Btw if you´re in Copenhagen there is a stocksale today & tomorrow: Soulland & Libertine Libertine. I wish I could be there! It´s Gl. Kongevej 39D from 11am-20pm.

      That sounds so cool! In Denmark a lot of churches will shut down in a couple of years & people are discussing what to do with them. I think that is an exellent choice.
