Experience seven unique works of art in Aabenraa’s Nørreport district. The permanent public exhibition has been created by selected young Danish contemporary artists, and is an element in Aabenraa’s urban development.
“Nørreport as an art destination – works by young Danish contemporary artists” is the title of Aabenraa’s major new art project which was launched in 2022. The exhibition is located in seven specially chosen narrow passages in the Nørreport area, which lies in the northern part of downtown Aabenraa. The district stretches from Nørretorv to Nørreport, which, thanks to its many narrow passages, has retained the structure of the medieval town. In Nørreport’s alleyways and passages, visitors can now experience a unique permanent exhibition of works of art created by young contemporary artists: Oskar Koliander (b. 1986), Rune Bosse (b. 1987) Rhoda Ting (b. 1985), Mikkel Dahlin Bojesen (b. 1988), Helene Nymann (b. 1982), Mathias & Mathias (b. 1986 / 1991), Torben Ribe (b. 1978) and Silas Inoue (b. 1981). The artists work in different media and materials, thus giving each passage its own unique expression. The establishment of the exhibition is part of Aabenraa’s urban development plan, which goes by the name of ”Aabenraa of the Future”.
“Nørreport as an art destination – Experience the seven works”, can be purchased as a pamphlet with a description of each of the works of art. In addition, the pamphlet contains a map of the Nørreport area. The pamphlet can be purchased from the tourist office in Aabenraa at Storegade 30, 6200 Aabenraa, or online via the link below.

The objective of the development of Nørreport is to focus on elements such as creativity, quality and engendering an inviting atmosphere. The seven high-quality works of art help make the area around Nørreport both inviting and exciting – for the benefit of locals and visitors alike. Decoration has been developed by the municipal authority in collaboration with Creator Projects, local ambassadors and the municipal arts council. The exhibition is also supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Den Jyske Kunstfond, BHJ Fonden and the municipal arts council. The works are all the property of the municipal authority.
