Anders Petersen - Collection and Craft

 

The gallery of Anders Petersen is at the north-east corner of Kløvermarken - the large open green space south of Christianshavn. The building was offices but just over two years ago the space was converted and opened up to form a long and beautifully lit gallery space but there are also workshops here where furniture is made and some pieces restored.

The present display is a collection of classic furniture by Poul Kjærholm, many with an amazing provenance, and there is a show of carefully-selected Japanese design and crafts that will continue through the summer and coincides with various events at various venues around the city … a festival that marks the diplomatic and trade links between Denmark and Japan.

An exhibition of furniture by Tomoyuki Matsuoka and work by Jan Machenhauer will open at the gallery on the 4th May.
