KØS Museum for Art in Public Spaces presents "Transformations in Plaster"

Contemporary play with plaster
The exhibition thrones the model of the newly revealed and much-discussed memorial sculpture, I Am Queen Mary, who honors African slaves on the West Indies. The memory sculpture, showing the rebel Mary Thomas, was created by the visual artists Jeannette Ehlers and La Vaughn Belle and is a hybrid of the two artists' bodies created with 3D scanning. The model is then 3D printed directly in plaster and shows, among other things, how the plaster today is part of contemporary art's creation processes.

Participating artists:
A Box, HW Bissen, Johannes Bjerg, Nicolai Dajon, Jeannette Ehlers and La Vaughn Belle, Elmgreen & Dragset, Edvard Eriksen, Poul Gernes, Jørgen Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Sophia Kalkau, Pontus Kjerrman, Svend Lindhart, Christian Lemmerz, Mogens Møller, Kai Nielsen, Knud Nellemose, Bjørn Nørgaard, Svend Rathsack, Helen Schou, Niels Skovgaard, Theobald Stein, Elisabeth Toubro, Hanne Varming and Willy Ørskov.
