Asger Jorn traveled to Paris in 1936 to study art. Among the biggest sources of inspiration was the internationally acclaimed artist Joan Miró. Although Jorn quickly found his own path in art, many parallels arose in the work of the two artists throughout his life. Including e.g. the experimental exploration of the possibilities of painting.
The exhibition conveys the sparkling encounter between two of the world art’s giants: the introverted, dreamy skeptic Joan Miró and the outgoing and social Asger Jorn. Where Miró cultivated a form of cosmic order, Jorn thrived around chaos.
The exhibition is realized on the occasion of Silkeborg’s 175th anniversary.
