COPENHAGEN.- GL STRAND marks the new year with this ambitious new work by the internationally recognized Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn, whose exhibition 'Community of Fragments' turns GL STRAND into an anti-architectural space.

The exhibition is created as a site-specific free access project on two floors and transforms the whole architecture of GL STRAND. Right from the main stairway that leads up through the gallery spaces, Hirschhorn lets the fake cave or abandoned mine take over from floor to ceiling.

All visitors are invited to participate in the reconstruction of GL STRAND in a workshop centered in the middle of the exhibition. Here one can among other things create sculptures and two-dimensional works that contribute to the exhibition; but one can also use the workshop for dialogue and debate. With the exhibition Thomas Hirschhorn creates an artistic space that we are invited to occupy – again and again if you like. For the same reason, admission to the exhibition is FREE.

Thomas Hirschhorn is one of the major international artists of today. For several decades he has participated in leading biennials all over the world. He is known for his ambitious projects in public space, and for projects which quite specifically involve the institutions where he exhibits, as well as the engagement of the public. And of course himself as artist. For Hirschhorn debate and exchanges of ideas take pride of place.

Thomas Hirschhorn has exhibited at a wide range of solo and group exhibitions all over the world. Among the solo exhibitions we can mention those at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, McaM Shanghai, and the Dia Art Foundation in New York. In 2011 he represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennale.
