Many are familiar with Bjørn Nørgaard’s work from the tapestries for the Great Hall at Christiansborg Palace (the seat of the Danish Parliament), from The Horse Sacrifice – or from his recent project of creating a tomb for the current Queen and Prince Consort. Bjørn Nørgaard is very much present in the public eye as an artist, debater, critic, and agent provocateur.

The exhibition Re-modelling the World presents Bjørn Nørgaard as an uncompromising artist who is always challenging habitual notions about art. Here you can get an overview of – and immerse yourself in – the work of one of the greatest Danish contemporary artists. His art is overwhelming, and he is immensely productive. The exhibition presents a total of 115 works from his almost 50 years as an active artist, showcasing his life’s work so far in chronological order, beginning in the mid-1960s and leading up to our present day.  The works themselves span the media of sculpture, actions, installations, film, and graphic art.
