Welcome to the Danish Art Workshops

The Danish Art Workshops (SVFK) is an institution under the Danish Ministry of Culture, whose purpose it is to provide working facilities for particularly demanding art works.

At the SVFK it is possible for artists to do work in large formats, which their own studios or equipment cannot facilitate. Artists, designers, craftspeople, and restorers can work here on projects in art and design at the highest level.

What's on

We enter 2022 by opening our own exhibition space featuring works produced in our workshops and studios. The space will display art- and design projects in between exhibitions with a specific focus on the time, experimentation, methods and choice of materials included in the process of making the artworks.

In this database we feature the artistic working process rather than the outcome in order to focus on the services we provide.

A totem is any organism, animal or mythical and spiritual animal or plant that assists or symbolizes the character traits and characteristics of individuals, families, and clans. With this project, I wish to illustrate how people and social contexts in a modern world orient themselves towards and find truths in a number of modern myths. In the modern world, where religion and spiritualism are on retreat, the myths of individuals and groups become diverse, divergent and often conflict-filled.
