A church on fire


Rosbjerg

Recommended Posts

200 years ago, Lord Nelson attacked Copenhagen in order to seize Denmarks navy in Englands war with Napoleon - the Copenhagen Cathedral (and much of it's surroundings) burned to the ground in the English attack.

 

An artistic duo has made a very interesting art piece representing what happened, by setting fire to the church (or so it seems when your inside).. it's really beautiful and to me it's a good example of how you can use Churches for eksperimental art.

 

It's part of a larger series of art pieces, shows and historical reenactments called (ironically) "Golden Days in Copenhagen"

That is really very good, I love how they have mixed dread and beauty in there. I remember a document a while ago that was about the attack on Copenhagen from a peasants point of view. It really felt like Dresden of it's time.

Denmark wasn't interested in joining the war, but considered England the most realistic ally if they were to join anyone - then England demanded Denmark navy, obviously we refused, they bombed, and then Denmark sided with Napoleon.. call us bitter loseres, but would you do any different?

Yes. I'd have puffed on my pipe then kicked Bonaparte in the chins.

I'm guessing our regent thought "with allies like that, who needs enemies?".. I mean Lord Nelson took our entire navy (the second biggest in the world at the time) and bombed our capital. Talk about hurting our pride. Besides, Denmark has always had a good relationship with France - how could we kiss-and-forget.

On behalf of Lord Nelson I apologise. In his defence I can only point out that according to letters of his he is known to have been unable to sleep because he was not "killing Frenchmen". Clearly this genocidal enthusiasm overmastered his natural finer feelings towards our no doubt gallant allies.

Well, getting our asses kicked seemed motivational. Once our fleet had been stolen and our ambitions for control of a regional alliance with Norway and Sweeden had become irellevant, our painters and poets started on whats commonly described as the danish golden age, our most prolific cultural boom.

 

Being a land locked contender in Northern Europe with neighbours like Germany and France is more trouble than it's worth.

Then by way of an apology I invite you to move Denmark to Northwest Scotland. I know that strictly speaking I should ask the Queen for permission, but I've done her one or two favours in our time, and I'm sure she'd approve in any case.

That looks great... very nice concept.

 

Or maybe it's my rational self satisfied at the sight of a burning church.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"
