Outdoor Sculpture by Tom Fruin

The NewYork-based artist, Tom Fruin, has intrigued and presented the inhabitants of Copenhagen with his Kolonihavehus. The sculpture placed in the plaza of the Royal Danish Library, in the capital of Denmark, has the appearance of a friendly and colorful stained-glass house, yet it also evokes thoughts of churches as well as inspires the sensation of a design à la Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Constructed of a thousand reclaimed pieces of plexiglass ranging in size from 2×2 to 24×36 inches, the sculpture has been the stage of daily performances by Copenhagen-based CoreAct headed by Anika Barkan and Helene Kvint. The performances included poetry of the Danish Vagn Steen, Computer-controlled light sequences by Nuno Neto and a sound installation by Astrid Lomholt.

Kolonihavehuses were originally small garden sheds that were designed to give cramped and often impoverished city-dwellers a small plot and a refuge from city life.

Thanks to Bill Tikos, of the Cool Hunter, for the information.
