The Danish exhibition “At Least One Minute” (Mindst ét minut) has just opened at the art gallery Nivaagaard north of Copenhagen and is a brave and unusual experiment to try and make the viewer stay “at least one minute in front of each painting. The gallery holds a number of painters by old masters such as Rembrandt and Bellini.

The curator Tina Midtgaard has asked 8 young designers to create a piece of furniture relating to one of the master paintings of the collection. The pieces are all available for the visitors to sit on and they are to create new relations and stories about the paintings.

Designers include Maria Lyhne Grønaa, Jonas Trampedachs, Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidts, Sofie Brünner, Karen Kjaergaard, Malene Bach, Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm and Violise Lunn.
