Once a year the municipality of Odense throws a one week long festival to honor their famous fairytale author Hans Christian Andersen. I once again had the pleasure of designing this years fairytale concept in Brandts Passage. The theme was “to travel is to live” and what better way to illustrate this saying than to actual travel into one of H.C. Andersen’s tales. I chose 7 different fairytales which all had different travel destinations. By walking down the narrow alley of Brandts Passage the viewers traveled through underwater kingdoms to freezing snowcovered mouintains, into deep lush jungles and dry sandy deserts. All 7 books had build in lights to create depth between the illustrated layers. The books also had build in speakers from where the fairytales were read out loud by proper storytellers. Concept design and illustrations by myself and construction by my talented and very handy boyfriend, Asger Stuhr.
The books were on public show from August 19th - 26th 2018.
