Copenhagen Contemporary

Copenhagen Contemporary

Daughter Elle and I spent the better part of yesterday in Copenhagen. We took the train across the bridge from Malmö and then walked via Strøget and Nyhavn to Refshaleøen, one of the Danish capital’s most culturally happening islands where we had lunch at Lille Bakery before visiting Copenhagen Contemporary.

Among several exhibits at this enormous industrial space, to us, the standout was definitely Cathrine Raben Davidsen’s drawings and large paintings. The short film shown adjacent to her exhibit offered relevant context to her thought process and an emotional dimension to what her work represents.

I’ve always cherished father-daughter time with Elle. When she was younger, the two of us would frequently take trips to Lapland, Gotland and Stockholm. We’ve also had fun weekend adventures in both Amsterdam and London.As Elle gets older and busier with her work and social life, it gets harder to find time for longer trips. Which makes having Copenhagen so close by very convenient.
