Oleg Kulik - Sportswoman. From the Museum series. 2002 Ekatarina and Vladimir Semenikhin's Foundation



February 5 to May 15, 2011 – Kunstforeningen Gl Strand – Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art

Horror, humour, fear and fascination are all reactions which the sensuous works of wax in this exhibition induce. Contemporary wax sculptures underline a new strategy in sculptural praxis which experiments with sensing, immediacy and dialogue. The international group exhibition: WAX SENSATION – NEW SENSUALISM IN CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE gathers a number of the contemporary rising and acknowledged artists who all within the last couple of decades have contributed to a new sensory and sculptural principle, particularly through sculptures of wax. Among them are Vanessa Beecroft, Maurizio Cattelan, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Robert Gober, Emil Westman Hertz, John Isaacs, Oleg Kulik, Anne Schneider, Gavin Turk, Brigitte Waldach and Andro Wekua.
