Danh Vō: Take My Breath Away arranged by Statens Museum for Kunst  in co-operation with The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York, shows the most comprehensive overview ever presented on Danish soil of the work of one of the greatest contemporary artists of Denmark.

 

Migration, cultural history and identity are key themes addressed in SMK’s new special exhibition Danh Vō: Take My Breath Away. Fragments of a full-scale replica of the Statue of Liberty, a chandelier that has witnessed key turning points in history, and a letter from a warring Henry Kissinger revealing his keen love of ballet: Danh Vō lifts existing objects out of their original context, interweaving them to form new narratives about identity and culture.
