During the summer, the large south wing at Kunsthal Charlottenborg is taken over by a solo exhibition presenting the internationally acclaimed artist Jane Jin Kaisen.

About

The exhibition will be the largest-ever to feature this Korean-born Danish artist, and the centrepiece will be her awe-inspiring film Community of Parting, which was shown in the Korean Pavilion as part of the prestigious Venice Biennale in 2019.

The work is partly autobiographical: the artist’s own diasporic background blends with myths, rituals and historical events. At Kunsthal Charlottenborg, the film will for the first time ever form part of a larger installation that incorporates materials such as rice paper, textiles, photography and found objects. From this, connections are made to a selection of earlier works from the last ten years where the artist explores topics such as memory, separation, translation and migration in a field where personal and collective stories meet.

The exhibition is curated by Henriette Bretton-Meyer.
