The Wild Swans: Original Artworks By Her Majesty The Queen Of Denmark

The Wild Swans: Original Artworks By Her Majesty The Queen Of DenmarkThis exhibition featured Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark’s decoupages and costumes for a new film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known tale by JJ Films in Copenhagen. These artworks, digitized and employed in the motion picture through green screen technology, form the background for the actors in an imaginative interface between art and cinema. Cut paper artworks created by Andersen in the mid-19th century were also included.

For several years, Her Majesty focused on the literary works of Hans Christian Andersen, interpreting his stories through her own illustrations and often emphasizing themes inherent to the original 19th century texts. Her artworks reveal a clear connection between contemporary Denmark and the country’s famed storyteller.

Meridian collaborated with the Royal Danish Court, the Embassy of Denmark, JJ Films, and the Odense City Museums to present The Wild Swans. This endeavor underscored the value each institution places on the role of art and culture in creating connections among people worldwide.
