As many other large cities, Copenhagen, the Danish capital, suffers from the increasingly severe cloudbursts caused by climate change. In response, the municipality currently implements a plan for cloud-burst protection, collecting and delaying rain in strategic places within the city to prevent flooding.
Grønningen is a local park in the urban area of the city, Copenhagen North West, and one of the spots included in the cloud-burst protection plan. In connection to the planned alteration of the park, the Danish National Art Foundation and the Municipality of Copenhagen invited visual artist Kerstin Bergendal (SE/DK) to propose a temporary but durational artwork, taking the park and urban re-organization as the point of departure. Apropos en eng, which in English translates to Concerning a meadow, is the two-year art-project responding to this invitation.
