Friends He Lost at Sea

Henrik Lund Jørgensen

Isn’t it rather, all things considered, that I remain suspended on this question, whose answer I tirelessly seek in the others face: what am I worth?

Honoré de Balzac

In his exhibition Friends He Lost at Se, the Danish artist Henrik Lund Jørgensen borrows motifs and compositions from the Skagen painter  Michael Anchers famous works: Vil han klare pynten (1879) and Mandskabet reddet (1894). The scenery is the same as in the original, the dramatic Danish west coast, but the characters are different. Lund Jørgensen has replaced the fishermen with boat refugees and painting has become video and photography.
