Early February Art: Prepare to have your perception severely tested!

Eye Attack
Feb 4-June 5, open Tue-Fri 11:00-18:00; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, GL Strandvej 13, Humlebæk; 115kr; louisiana.dk

Eye Attack is the name of an exhibition at Louisiana that will not attack not only your eyes but your whole sense of perception.

All of the exhibits are kinetic and optical art, which means (depending on what kind of brain you have) some of them will twist your mind and make you question your own vision.

Using a mix of timeless surprise and visual deceit, this exhibition is sure to be one for all to visit!

The artists have promised that this exhibition will “attack your senses” – a bold claim, but a true one. (DD)

Sigurd Swane
Feb 4-June 5, open Wed-Sun 12:00-16:00; Øregaard Museum, Ørehøj Allé 2, Hellerup; 60kr; oregaard.dk

Sigurd Swane (1879-1973) was the father figure of a true dynasty of Danish artists. Two of his wives and three of his offspring were also painters, while another son was a photographer!

Heavily influenced by the work of the Fauves on a trip to Paris in 1907, Swane came to the public’s attention with his first collection soon after.

His expressive and colourful paintings tended to focus on the relationship between art and life. They provide an interesting perspective on the lives of Danes, while his landscapes offer a similarly intriguing viewpoint on nature. (DD)
