CHRISTMAS IN THE WILDERNESSChristmas is an enchanting time. In the middle of a dark December we gather with loved ones and find comfort in traditions. But while you sit in the cosy glow of candle lights and warm yourself with a hot drink, why not allow yourself to dream? What if Christmas was a chance to do something new, grab those closest to you and disappear into a new Christmas universe where dreams and reality come together in the most enchanting of settings? This is the foundation for Royal Copenhagen’s Christmas Table Exhibition 2022.
”If I could snap my fingers and go somewhere crazy for Christmas, I’d like to teleport myself and my guests to a tent set up in Greenland’s wilderness. Where you can hear the wind gusting through the wild nature outside while the fire crackles and the table is set with my grandmother’s porcelain,” Adam Price tells of his Greenlandic Christmas table.
“I love cooking over a campfire and for me hunting is about an honest approach to cooking. Knowing exactly what I’m eating and being fully confident that the entire animal is used. It’s thoughtful cooking with respect for the animal, “ tells Adam, who in fact shot the musk ox and reindeer in the exhibition himself.
A Christmas dinner in the wilderness of Greenland should be festive; and what is more festive than his grandmother’s collection of classic Blue Fluted Plain porcelain which Adam has been lucky to inherit and frequently uses. The iconic Pattern No. 1 is mixed with the whimsical Royal Creatures collection and the traditional Blue Collectibles from Royal Copenhagen. Scattered around the tent are polar bear sculptures from Royal Copenhagen’s archives mixed with curiosities from Greenland.
Within the theme “An Enchanted Christmas”, this year’s exhibition explores the invited table decorators’ dreams and thoughts when their creativity is set free. With one foot planted in their own Christmas traditions and the other in their specific branch of the arts, the table decorators reach for a Christmas full of creativity and magic.
