exhibiting with Hammershöi in Denmark

Krokatsis is exhibiting his mirror works in the Hammershøi room of the Ordrupgaard Museum, Denmark

Ordrupgaard museum has given the British artist Henry Krokatsis access to its Hammershøi collection and invited him to create a correspondence between the iconic Danish painter’s work and his own.

Krokatsis has placed within the former drawing room work charged with domestic associations - covering the original wooden parquet with a hand cast black rubber floor and hanging a series of work made using discarded household mirrors that reflect a concentrated selection of Hammershøi’s interiors.

Both these artists employ the seemingly mundane to uncommon ends, using reduced yet somehow concentrated means. The multiple threads that connect these works are gently amplified by this extraordinary bringing together.
