Michael Kvium – artworks from the collection

The exhibition Michael Kvium shows works from Horsens Kunstmuseums big collection of artworks by the danish artist Michael Kvium(born 1955).

Kvium’s works are seeking the corners of our culture and staging the gloomy and macabre, the moral and physical decay. His visual universe deals with the world that we live in and the dark aspects of our existence. His approach is uncompromising, for which reason his works often awake both fascination and disgust.
