Norwegian Church, London

Containers of Light

In this exhibition, Norwegian artist Eigil Nordstrøm displays a series of works dealing with light as a substance. Light reveals textures, it activates colours and illuminates structures, but equally it is the surface of these structures that allows the light to be seen, to take on a tangible shape. The works span the last three years of his practice, and include oil painting, watercolour and drawing.

Opening night 17:00 - 20:00 Wednesday 26th of April, refreshments served!

The exhibition can be viewed during church opening hours, until the 20th of May.

How to make a "gækkebrev"
Danish spring tradition: Valentines letter, 'gækkebrev'

This is a paper cutting with a little poem, signed with dots - as many dots as there are letters in the sender's name. The receiver now has to guess who sent the letter but owes the sender an Easter egg is not getting it right.

Along with the letter, you would send a spring flower - usually a snowdrop.
