People’s Kitchen in Kolding
Art in the People’s Kitchen
Eva, who hails from Kolding in Denmark, followed the development of the People’s Kitchen’s and a newspaper article gave her the idea of a collaboration. She contacted John from the People’s Kitchen, who was thrilled to develop the place of creative work. Eva met with the patrons to discuss the project. “It’s a big change to the place, and I always work on the basis of the recipient’s own ideas” says Eva. It was a lively meeting, and the murals have received many comments from users who recognize both the place and themselves in the paintings.
Hope gives life. A painting can say more than 1000 words. At Kolding Hospital hangs a large painting with motive from the ugly duckling. “The staff told me that children who are awaiting a study will be calmed by means of the image. They feel bad, to talk to the doctor, and then they get better. As a duckling becomes a beautiful swan. It’s great to hear.” says Eva, who donated the painting to the hospital. “I want something with my art, and I will donate now and paintings to charity.” she adds.
