The Brenderup Globe at National Day June 5
The Brenderup Globe is symbolic of openness and solidarity.
The Globe is constructed of 9 “hoops”, cut out of Cortén steel plate 2,5 cm. The Globe is 5 meter in diameter. From this 2-dimensional plate, the Globe rises in its 3rd dimension in one single expression, which provides the sculpture with a thrilling dynamic: when passing the Globe, the 9 hoops will move individually – also at nighttime – when light transforms the Globe.
The Globe in its corrodes expression has become part of the scenery simultaneously rising above it.
The 9 hoops symboize that we constitute a unity on our round globe.
To the Brenderup inhabitants, it will symbolize whether you are en route into the world or coming home.
The Brenderup Globe is designed by Ole Flensted.
The re-erection of the Brenderup Globe was made possible by financial support from: Albani Fonden, Energi Fyns almene Fond, Familien Justesens Fond, Middelfart Industriforenings Fond, DagliBrugsen Brenderup, Fakta Brenderup, Brenderup Laegehus, Middelfart Kommune, and many locals have contributed: KH-toemrerne, Murerfirmaet Joergen Lundsgaard, Boye Jensen minientreprise, Gelsted Transport, Hans Nygaard smedie, Brenderup og Omegns Erhvervsforening, Brenderup Hoejskole, Flensted Mobiles and private support.
The Globe Guild invites you to climb the hill with the Brenderup Globe: sit down for a while and meditate. Feel how the world turns around you – and Brenderup!
Take care of your head: the Globe is very solid.
