The fairy-tale “King’s New Clothes” by the great Danish story-teller Hans Christian Andersen has been turned into an unusual project by the sculptor Egons Peršēvics.
Come to the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office on 26 August at 19:00 and witness the making of „So he bore himself even more proudly than before, and the chamberlains went on carrying the train that wasn't there at all”. Venue: 13/3 Marijas Str., Bergs bazaar.
The aim of Egons Peršēvics’ work is to remind us of the fairy-tale which so humorously illuminates such fears and their consequences.
Although the fairy-tale was written century and a half ago, its significance has not diminished in the least - we live at the time when anything could be subjected to question while, instead, virtually everything is agreed with.
The audience is encouraged to participate in the discussion – by posing questions or/and opposing the point of view of the lecturer.
>> Nordic Stories’ Thursdays is a series of events organised by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Latvia every last Thursday of the month.
