With an extensive solo presentation at ARoS, Grayson Perry (b. 1960), British winner of the Turner Prize 2003, shows his subtle, provoking, and beautiful works of art in Denmark. He is possibly best known as the potter ’in drag’. At a first glance, his vases appear to be traditional pottery, but a closer look reveals provoking statements, motifs from the gutter press as well as rude pictures. The exhibition also features Perry’s huge woven tapestries. They relate stories collected by the artist on his research trips in connection with the making of a series of prizewinning TV-programmes.
