At Victor Petersen's Willumsen collection at Herregården Odden, you can experience the special exhibition Shadows by Peter Nansen Scherfig during the summer, as well as the large collection of works by J.F. Willumsen.
Peter Nansen Scherfig has created a number of works that enter into a dialogue with Willumsen's works, including After the Storm, Fertility, and The Study. Here he works, among other things, with shadows on the floor and ceiling, cut in cloth and skin. Peter Nansen Scherfig unfolds a shadow landscape of which the viewer becomes a part and which opens the understanding for J.F. Willumsen's and Scherfig's works as well as the time the works were created. This exhibition is about a site-specific experience but also a simultaneous understanding of the work's essence and the place's unique possibilities.
The permanent Willumsen collection contains around 1400 drawings, sculptures, paintings, etc. by the Danish artist J. F. Willumsen. Here you can, among other things, see about 40 preliminary studies for the popular work Sun and Youth (also called Bathing Children) and get an insight into the artistic process around the Mountaineer.
Odden is Denmark's northernmost manor house. Originally it lay on a bank like on a promontory, surrounded by moats, streams, and a lake.
