ENGLISH:

I speak fairly good danish, but the danes laughed at me, when I pronounced Amager in the same way as I would pronounce Skomager. That´s how old people talk. I didn´t know how to say it, so I asked everyone I met.

 

Skomager is a shoe maker. Amager is an island and a part of Copenhagen where The Factory for Art and Design is located. I was there as artist in recidence in 2010

 

NORSK:

Jeg snakker noenlunde dansk, men ble ledd av, da jeg sa Amager på samme måte som jeg ville sagt Skomager. Sånn er det bare gamle mennesker som snakker. Jeg visste ikke hvordan jeg skulle si det, så jeg spurte alle jeg møtte.

 

Amager er en øy, og også en bydel i København, der bl.a. Fabrikken for Kunst og Design ligger. Jeg var der på stipendopphold i 2010.
