The location is Rudolph Tegner Museum north of Copenhagen. As a sculptor, Tegner appears to be a footnote in history, but for me his visual narrative is stupendous. From a brief search on the artist, nothing is written about his subconscious expressing itself through the scultpures. Tegner’s work is described as provocative — but moreso in being so classical and opposed to the cleaner, simpler Danish aesthetic.
