Skulpturel kunstinstallation - ”På Bedding”

“Mange havneområder bliver marginaliserede efterhånden som godstransporten flytter fra skibene over på andre transportsystemer, og industrien flytter bort. De arealer ved havnen, der således bliver frie, er åndehuller, med alle fremtidens muligheder i sig, inspirerende for mennesker i et gennemreguleret bysamfund. Det ville være synd at flytte ”gågademøblementet” til det gamle havneområde, et stykke bynatur med sin egen helt specielle stemning, som det er vigtigt at bevare. Inspireret af ”den gamle havn” har jeg fremstillet 12 ”havnebænke” til FredericiaC (Kanalbyen), der kan imødekomme det behov for siddepladser, der opstår, når et sådant areal overgår til mere rekreative formål, som det sker på Fredericia havn. ”Bænkene” har nogle erindringer i sig om skibe, tjære og mønje og er lige så selvfølgelige at sætte sig på som bolværket, bræddestablen og den omvendte båd. ”Havnebænkene” er udformet således, at regnvand løber af, og man får god støtte på grund af de skrånende siddeflader. Der er varierende siddehøjder for-, agter- og midtskibs.
