Yorgos Sapountzis: Deus Ex Machina
23 Aug – 20 Oct 2012

In the weeks leading up to the opening of the Copenhagen Art Festival, Yorgos Sapountzis will explore Copenhagen with his poetic and iconoclastic interventions in the public space.

The Greek artist will enter into dialogue with the city’s monuments and statues, often in the dark of night, when the city’s otherwise well-defined spaces and rules become more fluid. During his nocturnal expeditions he will climb onto the sculptures and array them temporarily in colourful attire and rickety constructions, before disappearing into the dark with his tent-like materials under his arm.
