This client-based mural was created for Sct. Joseph, a community space for seniors in Copenhagen in 2014 by Mads Sonne Bremholm. The client wanted a fresh, modern, abstract piece of wall art, which accommodated the beautiful, original Catholic entrance to a former church hall, which now acts as a very popular place for concerts, dance events, musical evenings, meetings, celebrations, festivals, with a lot of visitors, artists, performers etc.

Process

Since the designated space had a long legacy of historical significance, the collaboration with the client consisted of several sessions, exchanging ideas and themes bouncing back and forth. In co-creation, two words were picked, summarizing what visitors and the public experienced as the core values and the experience of the place. One word was GLÆDE ("JOY)", which encapsulated the atmosphere of the place. The letters disappeared and dissolved completely, so it was more play of colours, shapes and line, combining different techniques. An opposite wall (3 1/2 mtr x 2 mtr.) Klærkesalen Part 2 "GLADE" ("happiness") was produced in a blue-ish- yellow-orange colour scheme

Reflections

The alteration of the entrance hall created enjoyment, curiosity and contemplation for the visitors and really made the experience something unique and very special. Having flexibility in regard to shapes, lines and letterscapes, really expresses multiple ways the expressions of Letterscapes as murals can be utilized “odd size” wall space.
