Fjellerup i Bund & Grund (Utterly Fjellerup) took place in the depopulated town of Fjellerup, Denmark, an art project of implementing my ideas for local sites through organizing and drawing on transcontinental networks. At a time when my family of origin was beginning to die out, the project created a bridge between the coastal region where I grew up in Denmark, and the place I have chosen to live: NYC.
Fjellerup is a costal village, with records dating back to 1423, and a current population of around 400 people, most living "in town" and a more seasonal population by the beach. The town's primary sources of income, pound net fishing and tourism, peaked in the 1950's and 60's and gradual depopulation has resulted in parts of the place showing signs of neglect, beautiful ruins and resilient local stores. The population is homogeneous and predominantly elderly.
