A Danish Superman ?

Once more Jens Galschiot shows us how actions can speak louder than words. Only months since the Olympic games closed ( remember Orange ) and he's able to present work to highlight the difficulties of those who are 'home less ' Another facet of human rights . This week finds him flying to London to join a conference in Cardiff, Wales. He will present the first of a series of 30 bronze sculptures depicting homeless people.I received this information today and take pleasure in giving you this information.

'SAS has sponsored the flight. The homeless man will travel as an ordinary passenger, but on first class, as the tourist class does not have sufficient space for the big sculpture. The sculpture will be a part of a travelling exhibition of 30 homeless sculptures scheduled to be displayed in all European capitals in 2010 to fan a debate about the situation of homeless people.You’ll find the press release below with a photo at '
