Artist-in-residence, Hirsholmene

7 kilometer east of Frederikshavn we find a secret island, Hirsholmen, inhabited by 3 habitants. Hirsholmen is a part of a little group of small islands, and is the only one inhabited. Hirsholmen is protected because of the special character of the nature there, specifically its many birds during summertime. Periodically Danish Arts Council rents out its house in the wonderful and special corner of Denmark to artists, both national and international. I have chosen the silence in November. November will be a month with research on the raw material, which is here in abundance and diversity: the seaweed.
