Joana Vasconcelos - Textures of life

“From October 14, 2016, the Danish museum ARoS Aarhus Art Museum presents a large solo exhibition by Joana Vasconcelos, together with the greatest Valkyrie conceived by the artist to this day, which will be part of the museum's permanent collection.
The Textures of Life exhibition includes not only some of the artist's most iconic works, such as The Bride, Independent Heart, Marilyn and Lilicoptère, but also shows a career spanning 20 years, including works from 1996 to date.
Valkyrie Rán is 50 meters long and was designed specifically for the ARoS, extending through the eight floors of the building. The installation combines the traditional techniques that characterize the works of the Valkyries series, such as crochet and embroidery, with LED technology and the exquisite fabrics of Kvadrat, a leading designer fabric manufacturer in Europe.”
