About Kasper Holm Jensen and the exhibition: The exhibition consists of a series of tall oblong frescoes, which deal with themes of, among other things, scheming and fraud - based on Nyborg's old history and today. The art works are created by artist Kasper Holm Jensen. Kasper was born and raised in Esbjerg. He moved in 2021 with his family from Copenhagen to Tårup on Funen. Kasper is educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and has exhibited at home and abroad, most recently in Skagen at the exhibition venue SKAL Contemporary.
The artist's story about the exhibition: Beneath the surface in the old Nyborg, under the stones and ramparts, low-pitched echoes from voices longing for justice - and voices that differently desire eternal ignorance and concealment - are cast back and forth between old roots and ancient sediments. Voices that resonate on the surface of their corrupt community. The one who did the wrong and the one who was betrayed. Scheming, cheating, fraud and power - a power lived out and often hidden. The exhibition 'He he' is a scene set about power games and secret agendas - a 'whodunit' - woven together by our past and present. A disgruntled customer once wrote online 'Not original. Fake. Poor product quality. Poor service by seller', to which the anonymous seller replied: 'He he'.
Meet the artist
Common to all exhibitions in the water tower is that the artists themselves will be present. In addition to looking at beautiful, exciting and inspiring art, you can also have a chat with the person behind the individual works. At the joint exhibitions, the presence of the artists is distributed over the entire opening.
Nyborg Water Tower
The water tower stands on the Queen's Bastion and many years ago ensured the water supply for the entire city. You can get all the way to the top and look out over the historic Nyborg Rampart. The water tower dates from 1899 and is listed.
