Architect: Nicolaj Eigtved, 1754. Client: Agency for Culture and Palaces. Architects: Arkitema Architects
The starting point for the art is the architecture itself, in the form of the contours of features like the cornices and window surrounds. These were drawn by the palace architect Nicolai Eigtved in the 1760s, and were used as templates by the stonemason for the profiles on the palace exterior. Here they have been recreated as two-dimensional images in the paving. Like all artists who are meticulous about their work, Eigtved redid his sketches repeatedly. To bring this process to life and make it visible, all 11 of his sketches are included in the paving.
