Saturday 14 May 14:00 – Helsingör Tour: The Anonymous Artist

We’ll take a walk in the city of Helsingör and visit different locations to find artworks and installations in the cityscape by the Anonymous Artist of Helsingör. We’ll be walking between lots of different sights, so put on some comfortable shoes and prepare for a cultural treasure hunt in the centre of Helsingör! On our tour around the town, we’ll be guided by the artist, who will tell us about the different art projects, the thoughts and ideas behind them, and the different processes of manufacture which make it possible to create the artworks. We’ll end our tour at the artist’s workplace where you’ll get a quick insight into the bronze casting process, copper electrolysis, and more, which the artist uses to create his artworks.   

If you’d like to find out more about the Anonymous Artist, please visit his website: www.anonymkunstner.dk  or go to his Instagram https://www.instagram.com/handsofelsinore/
