Current research

My PhD project From Gold to Oblivion and Back: A Site, Surface and User Sensitive study of ephemeral Monuments in Public Space, will research the fundamental dynamic and temporary nature of monuments and sculpture through a diachronic case study of a sculpture group standing on the 9th floor of the Copenhagen City Hall Tower which were originally installed on a temporary honorary gate at Højbro Plads in May 1892 in celebration of King Christian IX and Queen Louise's golden wedding.

My PhD project is affiliated with the research project Moving Monuments: The Material Lives of Sculptures from the Danish Colonial Era and the Museum of Copenhagen. The project is financed by The New Carlsberg Foundation.
