This exhibition for the first time ever presents a significant overview of the life’s work created by the unique artist Ovartaci outside the psychiatric hospital in Risskov, where the artist was a patient for 56 years.
The exhibition offers additional perspectives on Ovartacis fantastical universe by showcasing several contemporary artists whose themes or for- mal modes of expression reflect Ovartacis art.
Thus, the exhibition unfolds the madness, the desire and – importantly – the political perspectives that emanate from Ovartacis work.
The exhibition is arranged in collaboration with Museum Ovartaci and curated by Mathias Kryger. It is suppported by 15. Juni Fonden, The Augustinus Foundation, the C.A.C. Foundation, Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond, The Obel Family Foundation and the Danish Arts Foundation.
