At the Danish Nature Meeting taking place in Hirtshals on May 24-26 visitors can experience Sub created by sound artist Morten Poulsen for bunker # 42 in the Hirtshals bunker battery. Artists Inge Tranter and Morten Poulsen are available at the Nature Meeting:

Come and explore the strange-sounding plant names that we have in Denmark and listen to the nature in Hirtshals. We will be in tent number 34 in The Village and at the Lunchpack Room at the Hirtshals Lighthouse up the hill. We will alternate during the Nature Meeting, so when Morten is in the tent, Inge will be in the Lunchpack Room. You can go on a Sound Walk with Morten or imagine and draw a flower with Inge. Both Inge and Morten will be around for the whole of the Nature Meeting, where they will be able to tell you more about the bunker project. 

Children are asked to imagine and draw the flowers based on their names.

The drawings will be used for a series of porcelain sculptures to be created by ceramist artist Janice Anee Hunter and artist Inge Tranter. The sculptures will interpret the children’s ideas.

The Reoccupied Bunker will be the ‘culture light house’ for Hirtshals town anniversary in 2019. The Reoccupied Bunker is a collaboration between the artists:
Morten Poulsen
Janice Anee Hunter &
Inge Tranter
