SMK, Copenhagen Presents Louise Alenius’s Tête

Until 27 October, the SMK Stage – overlooking the park beyond – showcases the artist Louise Alenius’s Tête: a three-metre tall wooden sculpture shaped like the artist’s head. The work allows one person to enter at a time. Seated inside the head, each visitor is entirely undisturbed, allowing them to gather their thoughts and devote their undivided attention to the music.

Until 27 October, the SMK Stage – overlooking the park beyond – showcases the artist Louise Alenius’s Tête: a three-metre tall wooden sculpture shaped like the artist’s head.

With the installation Tête, Louise Alenius invites visitors to enter a miniature concert hall in the form of a vast wooden replica of the artist’s own head. Inside the sculpture, a new sound work composed by Louise Alenius plays on a loop. The entire work is a celebration of thoughts, ideas and music – and a space created to protect such things.

Louise Alenius is a composer and has created operas, choir pieces as well as a series of one-to-one ‘petit shows’ called Porøset, performed at the Royal Danish Theatre over the course of several years. Alenius has received numerous awards for her music, and several of her pieces have been nominated for the prestigious Reumert award.
