Ugo Rondinone - Arken

Vocabulary of Solitude

We visited the art museum Arken to see Mucha, but had a bonus experience. It was  Ugo Rondinones installation: Vocabulary of Solitude. It consists of 45 human sculptures, all dressed as clowns. They are all different in stature, but have a tiredness in common. They are sitting or lying down. It is a silent place and they are perhaps a little sad in spite of their colorful costumes. A great contrast to the happy, rushing around and noisy clowns we normally see.
The exhibition can be seen until the 30th of December.
