The northcoast arttriennial - heretage
from 22th of June to 20th of October 2019
This year the museum is showing 3 works of art from 3 prominent artists:
Tim Hinman /Third Ear
Their works are based upon the hereitage that the sculptur Rudolph Tegner left for times to come.
The Deity and its Creators, 2019
Myths are generally about how gods and heroes came into being and often myths have a begin– ning and an end. Alexander Tovborg, like Rudolph Tegner, is interested in myths and religion. With The Deity and its Creators, Tovborg enters into dialogue with one particular pencil sketch by Tegner, which lends its name to the exhibition.
In his picturesque artwork, Tovborg recreates parts of the motif from Tegner’s sketch. The paintings are large and installed so they mirror the course of the myth from start to finish. In this way, the myth takes on a physical form and appears as an independent space that you can step into. When you move through the space, you are surrounded by a mythical story told in pictures and can occupy the space of one of
the characters in the artwork - just as Tegner’s sculptures in the museum occupy a space. In this way, Tovborg’s art is made accessible to the spe– ctator and the other artworks in the museum.

Rudolphs Balls, 2019
On Rusland’s infertile sandy soil, Rudolph Tegner’s sculptures extend dramatically towards the sky. Symbolic, vitalistic, epic and dramatic artworks. The struggle of a genius
and his martyrdom. According to Tegner, woman is connected to the earth, motherhood and
the demonic. It is woman who tries to lead man astray as he strives for spirituality.
Sophia Kalkau’s artwork is based on Tegner’s landscape and his story. Tegner and Eros, ero– ticism and woman. Not far from Tegner’s statue Woman from The Rivals, Sophia Kalkau has placed a pair of large and heavy dropshaped objects in the heather–strewn landscape. They could have fallen from the sky, be seed pods from a prehistoric tree or autumn fruit, but their title is Rudolph’s Balls.

Tim Hinman / Third Ear
A Hymn, 2019
In his own words, Rudolph Tegner described The Arch of Life, the project which he hoped to be his life’s work, as a hymn about human life from birth to death. “I wanted to express their joys and sorrows, their loves and break–ups, their struggles, victories and defeats, until lone– liness takes each one of them into its embrace."
With his sound installation, Tim Hinman mirrors Tegner’s thoughts and his artwork. Located in the main hall in the centre of the museum, two chairs face the artwork known as The Arch of Life. Here, you can listen to hundreds of voices from recordings Tim Hinman has made over the past 20 years through his work with audio, pod–casts and radio. The voices tell real life stories and together they form Tim Hinman’s hymn about contemporary human life.
