For BunkerLove Festival 2014 in Furreby by Løkken on July 13, painter and multi-artist Erik Peitersen will create a Floating Bunker Transformation.

The Floating bunker was created for People’s BunkerLove Festival 2013 in Furreby. It was exhibited on the beach until late August, from there it drifted 5 kilometres North to Nr. Lyngby and has been prepared for internal transformation for BunkerLove Festival 2014. Michael Nørlev of made this video from Erik Peitersen’s release of the Floating bunker on July 21, 2013 at People’s BunkerLove in Furreby. Vera Lynn musically accompanied the pushing of the bunker, which was set to float with help from and generous volunteers. Cembrit most kindly sponsored the materials.

Erik Peitersen in 2012 set the stage for BunkerLove Association by participating in the pilot project with the work Gold Tooth, a gilded bunker. He is also a spokes person for BunkerLove. He is currently working on his Outdoor Art project and heading North, using nature and spectators as active influences in a dialogue with his canvases. Peitersen brings to BunkerLove his wish to portray the constant change, beauty and brutality, the deconstructive powers’ symbiotic balance with the accidental sublimation and transformation. An attempt to capture the merging of before, now and after in one go.
