#005 Frederikke

Copenhagen, Denmark



Frederikke was dismantled in September 2015.

“Fred” means peace in Danish and Frederikke is a scrapwood street art sculpture I made after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Copenhagen in 2015. Frederikke is a peace bringing woman who breaks guns, hoping to bring an end to all the shootings and violent acts caused by political and religious conflicts around the world. I installed Frederikke in a popular area in the diverse neighborhood, Nørrebro, in Copenhagen. Though we didn’t get permission to do this by the city, the locals greeted Frederikke with lots of love and she became a symbol in Nørrebro, untill she unfortunately was tilted and broken doing a storm. Frederikke was built from scrap wood found around the area of Frederiksberg in Copenhagen.
