This mobile has been developed in cooperation with Museum Jorn, Asger Jorns beautiful museum in Silkeborg, Denmark.
The four small figures in the mobile have been based on some of Asger Jorns early sketches, done with Indian ink on paper.
Jorns sketchbooks bred a great diversity of creatures which he gave highly imaginative names to, such as Aganakker, Pikipofer and Feligramser. A sketchbook from 1939 teems with about 70 small creatures all jumbled together on a single page, some of them in pairs, other separate.
The figures have been selected, graphically modified and juxtaposed in such a way that they form the letters J O R N. They have been coloured using Asger Jorns palette as the point of departure. The figures are also used as an element of one of the logos at Museum Jorn, Silkeborg. The mobile expresses spontaneity, playfulness, experimentation all of them important themes in Asger Jorns works.
