Larissa Sansour represents the Danish Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale, 2019.
Commenting on the appointment of Sansour, the Danish Arts Foundation’s committee chair, Lisette Vind Ebbesen, says: “We chose Larissa Sansour because her art addresses issues that are not just relevant in Denmark, but in the rest of the world too. She delves into current political issues as well as more universal aspects of the human condition associated with identity and belonging. Good art serves to initiate conversations and discussion, and we believe that Larissa Sansour achieves precisely that in her intriguing, relatable art”.
Dates: 11 May - 24 November 2019.
