Tal R

In my struggles with Danish language recently I didn‘t write any posts, but today is the day! I really missed writing for my blog.

Yesterday I had great and interesting day in Aarhus and I am looking forward to share the story with you, my dear readers.

My day started at Hasle culture house. In the area there live a lot of pensioners and people with small incomes, so at library they opened culture house. They have different initiatives, like creative shop, where one can bring their hand – made and sell it (there are pieces from Somalia, Romania, most are from Denmark). Since I like hand made, visiting this shop gives me inspiration (one woman does painting on stones, another makes braceletes from tooth brushes). Also at the culture house they have lessons for pregnant women, glass making, bord tennis and cafe with lunches and cakes (run by volunteers, so the prices are very small).

The event I attended was creative meetings, mostly pensioners come there, so for me it was great opportunity to practise my Danish. I really like pensioners here in Denmark, they have very social life and lots of hobbies. One can argue that they have good pensions so they can afford it. Well, it can be true, but also I think it is in the culture. People here do a lot of volunteer works, and no matter how ill they can be in an old age, they go to different social events.

Современная датская живопись

В настоящее время  в Дании популярно направлении в живописи, которое представлено художниками, рисующих в несколько детской манере. Наиболее известные из них Юлия Норд (Julie Nord), Катрин Эдэбейэр (Kathrine Ærtebjerg) и Тэль Р (Tal R). Все они закончили  датскую академию живописи в Копенгагене и стали популярны после 2000-хх. Это художники – сказочники (fairy-tales artists). Они отошли от абстракции, так как обычному человеку сложно понять, что изображено на картине. Тем более, что не смотря на то, что Дания маленькая страна, но существуют различия по уровню жизни, месту жительству, интересам. Поэтому они нашли сюжеты, знакомые всем еще из детства, из сказок, буть то сказки братьев Гримм, или кэрроллская Алиса из страны чудес (Юлия Норд часто использует эту тематику).
