A recently published report known as the National Health Profile 2021 reveals that the mental health of Danes is in sharp decline, including that young people in Denmark are affected by stress to a greater extent than before. Sowing the Seeds of Love is an art project comprising four stages of development, all aimed at using artistic practices to find solutions to issues of performance anxiety and stress among young students.

Socially committed and participatory in scope, the exhibition is set in two specially designed architectural pavilions inside the courtyard of Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Here, all interested parties can stop by to explore a range of artistic methods used in previous projects by the Kenneth Balfelt Team. Visitors can also take part in the creation of the new art project through workshops held in the exhibition pavilions. With this approach, Sowing the Seeds of Love gives visitors insight into artistic processes that are not normally visible to audiences.

As part of the project, the Kenneth Balfelt Team // Johan August collaborate with University College Copenhagen to investigate the possibility of creating new social and physical initiatives that can counteract the growing stress levels experienced by young people today. Here, students, teachers and professionals from University College Copenhagen’s teacher programme will take part in interviews and workshops side by side with the audience.
