Frederiksberg Allé 41 2023

— Frederiksberg Municipality

Frederiksberg Allé 41 has become an even more beautiful landmark for the city as the top of the building has been adorned with the artwork ‘Balance of Time’ created by internationally renowned artist Jeppe Hein.

‘Balance of Time’ has been specifically created for Frederiksberg Allé 41 and is being realized in close collaboration between Frederiksberg Municipality, Jeppe Hein, Cobe Architects and Creator Projects. 

Jeppe Hein’s artwork consists of a large sphere with a diameter of 2.4 meters, slowly circulating around the edge of the building’s roof. The journey takes one hour, so it positions itself at the corner of Frederiksberg Allé and Platanvej every 60 minutes. Balance of Time thematizes life as a balance between control and letting go; bringing the different forces of life into harmony.

The art project is made possible thanks to donations from A.P. Møller Foundation, Det Obelske Family Foundation, Frederiksberg Foundation, the Danish Arts Foundation, and the building’s developer, NRE Group A/S and UNION KUL. In addition, there is a small self-financing contribution from Frederiksberg Municipality and a reallocation of funds from the The Copenhagen Metro for the beautification and improvement of Metro stations in Frederiksberg.

Jeppe Hein is represented by KÖNIG GALERIE, Berlin, 303 GALLERY, New York and Galleri Nicolai Wallner, Copenhagen.
