Ceramic: Clay in art is more popular than ever both in Denmark and internationally. COOL CLAY – Ceramic Containers in Art Today presents 20 Danish artists’ reinterpretation of clay pots as works of art. Here the clay container exists as applied art, myth, body, sound instrument, canvas, and sculpture.
The staging of the exhibition – with tons of earth on the gallery floors and heavy textiles on the walls – arouses the senses – touch, sight, smell and hearing intensify the experience of the many works filling the galleries.
