One hour away from Copenhagen, Lys Over Lolland has become, over its nineteen years of existence, a staple feature of the Danish art scene. In 2019, France was the guest of honor, with an exceptional presentation of tapestries from Mobilier national’s Manufacture des Gobelins, never shown before in Denmark, directed by Gilles Bonnevialle, Marie Hélène Bersani and Susanne Grue Jorgensen. The only French artist displayed next to the State collection tapestries, Silvère Jarrosson, was allotted a dedicated space in the former factory hosting the exhibition.
Unlike the previous installations of the work (especially at Riga Fine Arts Academy), the set for this monumental piece was arranged in separate lots, in contrast with the initial frieze layout, offering a fresh interpretation avenue for this multifaceted work.
Over seven thousand visitors from all over Denmark came to discover this selection of pieces from Paris.
