New site specific art at the Danish Immigration Service in Næstved commisioned by Creators Projects and art consultant Lars Rahbek.
“Art will be a significant part of the new building for the Danish Immigration Service in Næstved. The architectural firm, AART Architects, has created an open and dynamic workspace that balances learning and professional development. The building contains open office spaces and flexible rooms that gives the possibility of working in calm environments.
Creator Projects has in collaboration with art consultant Lars Rahbek developed a strategy with site specific artworks that will be shown in different parts of the building. The space will show unique art experiences that will spread happiness and inspiration, both for employees and visitors of the Danish Immigration Service.
Amalie Jakobsen (b. 1989) is interested in the combinations of form, color, rooms and movements. For the central atrium, Jakobsen has created two sculptures in the primary colors red and blue. The red sculpture, “Rivers”, is six meters tall and has two curved shapes that leans towards each other. The other sculpture, “Waves”, has deep blue colors and will be placed on the wall. It is intersected by a diagonal axis and divides into two parts.
Artists Amalie Jakobsen, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen, Rune Bosse and Michael Utzon have been chosen for the decoration of the Danish Immigration Service.”
