Nordic swan from Washington D.C. to seattle

To reflect on the urgency of protecting and saving our environment, the Embassy is collaborating with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture, to display Nordic Swan by Danish artist Thomas Dambo across the United States.

Known for crafting large works of art out of waste material, Dambo’s sculptures show the potential in material that is often discarded, becoming a threat to the natural world. Nordic Swan is constructed from more than 300 recycled plastic buckets and is a testament to sustainability and recycling.

Nordic Swan’s American debut was at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Art as part of the COAL + ICE exhibition, thereafter it moved its way up to the Embassy as part of the annual EU Open House celebration.

From July through the rest of 2022, Nordic Swan will be exhibited at the National Nordic Museum in Seattle.
