Norbert Tadeusz and Christian Lemmerz at Horsens Art Museum

In 2016 the exhibition MEAT was exhibited at the Danish Faurschou Foundation in Beijing. Originally, the exhibition included artworks by the German artist Norbert Tadeusz (1940-2011) and the German/Danish artist Christian Lemmerz (b.1959). Sadly, the exhibition did not go as planned. When arriving at the Chinese border, the Chinese Government censured Norbert Tadeusz’ paintings. The only artworks that were allowed through the border were the artworks by Christian Lemmerz. The planned exhibition did open, but only with the artworks by Christian Lemmerz. White paintings were hung on the walls, as a gesture to what should have been filled by Norbert Tadeusz’ paintings. The exhibition was aesthetically beautiful, but the wanted dialog between the two artists did not happen.

Now four years later, Horsens Art Museum is honored to finally bring the artworks together in a new exhibition, which takes us through different materials, medias and generations. The intention behind the exhibition is to activate and actualize the two artists interests in the body and flesh.
