Corpus Delicti


Sometimes, in the work of German-Danish artist Christian Lemmerz, a “child’s christening is symbolised with a baptismal font in white marble with the inside shaped as a baby coffin….[A] wet grave filled with Kölner Wasser, to dampen the stench.”

In “Corpus Delicti” at the Copenhagen branch of Gallery Faurschou, the lifesource is in the details. The gallery has posted a slide show of the dark, luminous exhibition.
