"Sculpture is a hole in the world. Not an object but its absence, a void. A sculpture lacks life, needs you, it’s an emptiness you occupy. Our world is water; make a sculpture for water, then. A pipe, a hole moving water through the earth, a passage from one place to another. Water is public space underground us. We need to go there, move through it ourselves, go inside the pipeline and live there." - Oscar Tuazon

Family Stories, SMK - National Gallery of Denmark
13 October – 7 January 2018
Gillian Wearing's solo exhibition at SMK presents sculpture, video and photo works created from 1992 to the present day with a focus on family relations and material related to the sculptural project A Real Danish Family.
The project was first launched in the autumn of 2016 with a campaign inviting all families in Denmark to take part in the competition to be immortalised in bronze. The nationwide sculpture project was carried out as a collaboration between Gillian Wearing, Kunsthal Aarhus, DR and SMK, celebrating the many different types of family found in Denmark.
A Real Danish Family is supported by the Bikuben Foundation, the City of Copenhagen and the Danish Arts Foundation.
