Connecting with ancestors across time and space
Exhibition at The Thorvaldsen's Museum, Copenhagen
08.03.- 18.10.2020

Me visiting the collection at The Thorvaldens Museum together with Rine Rodin and Line Esbjørn.

Last but not least, I am looking forward to showing my new site-specific installation for the exhibition Face to Face: Thorvaldsen & Portraiture.

The group show revolves around Bertel Thorvaldsen’s portrait busts with a focus on ancestors and belonging. The exhibition also features my significant other, visual artist Nikolaj Recke, with whom I will be having a public discussion about ancestral representation and positionality among more on 26 March (TBA).
My work points into historical atrocities met by black people as well as their resistance against them. The piece for this show delves into The Black Holocaust and Black (non)existence today, in relation to the bodies that built our modern society, to the scattered African diaspora and to the bodies that are now perishing in the Mediterranean in the search for a better life in Europe.

Face to Face: Thorvaldsen & Portraiture springs from
an extensive research and communication project Powerful Presences run by the museum and the University of Copenhagen. Additionally the exhibition features the Danish artists Lise Harlev, Merete Pryds Helle and Trine Søndergaard. 

Please take time to see this if in Copenhagen!

Exhibition opening march 8, Bertel Thorvaldsens Plads 2, Copenhagen, Denmark
See you around!
Warm Regards,
