Joana Vasconcelos I’m Your Mirror

20 Juli 2019 00:00 - 27 November 2019 00:00

‘I’m Your Mirror’ shows more than thirty of Vasconcelos' iconic sculptures and installations from 1997 to the present, including ‘Lilicoptère (2012)’, the gold-plated helicopter decorated with Swarovski crystals and ostrich feathers that she made for her solo exhibition at the Palace of Versailles.

The Kunsthal is delighted to present this special exhibition, organised by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain, in collaboration with the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Portugal, and Kunsthal Rotterdam - a first for The Netherlands. Joana Vasconcelos is known for her keen sense of proportions, masterly use of colour and unusual choice of materials, such as domestic items, wall tiles, textiles, medicines, urinals, telephones, pans and plastic cutlery. Like a modern alchemist, she transforms everyday objects and clichés from the consumer society into works of art full of meaning and symbolism. Hidden beneath the apparent cheerfulness of her work lie social and political issues such as oppression, human rights, immigration, globalisation, identity and gender.
