If you find yourself in Copenhagen, you should definitely visit the Royal Danish Library Plaza, where a New York-based artist displayed an interesting art installation. Tom Fruin’s Kolonivehus is an art installation constructed from a steel structure welded and painted by the artist, and found plexiglass displayed in a mosaic of colors and dimensions. More than 1,000 pieces of recycled plexiglass found in different situations were used in the construction of the Kolonivehus. Beautifully decorating the plaza, the 12 x 12 x 14 feet plexiglass house is fun to look at in daylight, but even more interesting during nighttime.
Some pieces measuring from 2×2 to 24×3 were transformed into operable doors and windows and others adorn the structure of the house-shaped installation. Inspired by small garden sheds that were used to shelter less fortunate citizens, the Kolonivehus is used as a modern stage for daily performances by Copenhagen-based CoreAct (Anika Barkan and Helene Kvint). Here, poetry and performance, alongside computer-controlled light sequences and sound installations create a constant attraction for passers-by.
