Douglas Gordon and Mircea Cantor at Arken Museum of Modern Art, Ishøj

Douglas Gordon and Mircea Cantor are part of the group exhibition ‘Animals in Art’ at Arken Museum of Modern Art in Ishøj, Denmark. Camels and kittens, elephants and rats, feathered creatures and cute pets. In recent years, contemporary art has been exploring the way we look at animals, talk about animals, use animals and understand our­selves through encounters with other species. ‘Animals in art’ shows sculptures and installations, video, photography and paintings by a wide array of international artists who explore the way we humans study, categorize, live with and use animals – and how we thus try to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves.  March 21 – August 9, 2020.
