Workshops at the Royal Cast Collection Kobenhavn
(1)Annarosa Krøyer Holm, graduate from the Royal Danish Academy: Archive on Whiteness. From April 12 th.
A 2500 kg plaster cast of a tent is made directly on the floor.
The tent is a copy of a type of tent used by anthropologists on their journeys to study non-western primitives, and is thus related to the Archive on Whiteness, containing copies of texts and artworks on whiteness, understood as both a process of turning white, as well as a matter of race and colour.
The archive is placed in the Lounge / library.

Vanja works freely in relation to a cast of Socrates, while Martin makes a copy, both of them working in marble from Carrara.
