Historiske spor af Jens Galschiøt
Historical traces - 2017
Historic Tracks is an artistic reminder of the environment that was at the harbor in Århus, from a time when everything was unloaded by hand.
The sculpture group consisting of 7 people cast in bronze. 4 people are busy unloading coffee bags, 2 people stack them and the last one takes a little rest.
The union LO Aarhus partnered up with Jens Galschiøt to commission a dockworker monument for the harbor in Aarhus. The sculpture depicts a typical work environment at Aarhus Harbor, and consists of 7 people cast in copper–bronze and stainless steel. The Salling Foundation has donated 405.000 euros for the sculpture. The sculpture should be launched in late August 2017, while Aarhus is the European Culture City.
