Free entry

Join us when Kunsthal Aarhus opens the doors to Nanna Debois Buhl's solo exhibition Picture the Sky.

Picture the Sky spans the ground floor of Kunsthal Aarhus and features three large-scale installations, Helios, Particles & Planets and Lunar, created especially for this exhibition. In a spatial narrative, the works make surprising connections between sky and earth, historical and scientific matter, heroes and collectives, craft and technology, photographic and alchemical speculations.
