Magic, rebellion and humour radiate out of the alluring, surreal imagery created by the British-born Mexican artist Leonora Carrington (1917–2011). Carrington was a key figure in twentieth-century Surrealism, yet she refused to be limited by any label. A wealth of inspirations permeates her unique version of Surrealism: Esoteric symbols from tarot cards and alchemy mix with thirteenth and fourteenth century Italian painting and Irish legends. Made in close collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid, ARKEN presents the first major retrospective in Denmark about Leonora Carrington’s life and work.
