og museets oversættelser

DANSK TEKST                  OVERSAT MED

ulykkelig kærlighed             pain of ill-fated love

man skal være glad              you should be thankful

Men menneskets vilkår      the human condition

Ud med dig                           it´s up

Dér er den tragiske            That tragic undertone
undertone, som ingen         cannot be ignored
kan se bort fra -

Det vil ligge bagved           It will always lurk behind

TEKSTFORSLAG:
You
have to accept the hand you are dealt. I have not starved, I have not suffered from unhappy love,  I have not had tuberculosis  - you have to be glad not having bumped into such problems. But the conditions of man? – you may live to be 30, you may live to be 50, or 70 or 90, but once your time is up it means – off you go! You have had your day. There that tragic undertone is which no one can ignore – especially not if you work with art. It will be lying behind.  

   
   
DANSK TEKST                  OVERSAT MED

Man kan sige                      You could say 
smukke ting                         pleasant things

det er den vi lever af.          we need the earth
Jorden er altså også            to live, so it can be a
noget smukt.                        beautiful thing

ulykken gror nede               misery grows in the
i jorden                                 earth, in the soil

lykken, den finder man       happiness is an  
som noget luftigt oppe        ethereal thing 
i sfærerne.                           floating in the higher
                                             spheres.

Ja, mod himlen                     reaching for the sky

er det vel op imod solen       it means reaching for
                                              the sun

TEKSTFORSLAG:
You can say many beautiful things about Mother Earth, everything is growing, everything is blooming, we are living off it. So the Earth is also something beautiful. Yet it seems that unhappiness grows down in the Earth, whereas happiness is to be found as something airy up in the spheres. Yes, towards the sky, that suits me fine…in my interpretation I suppose it is up towards the Sun.

Der er yderligere én stor vægtekst på udstillingen, den kan besøgende så selv studere nærmere.
