Like a needle in a haystack – Cildo Meireles

Askehave, 2014

The exhibition ‘Like a needle in a haystack’ at Kunsthal 44 Møen presents selected pieces from the internationally regarded artist Cildo Meireles.

The central piece in the exhibition is the work ‘La Bruja’ - The Witch, 1979 / 2014 - which explores the idea of ‘material thought’: a household broom leans against the wall, but instead of short bristles the shaft holds 1.000.000 meters of black cotton threads, covering the whole gallery in a monstrous mess.

Kvadrat is contributing to the exhibition with the 1.000.000 meters of black cotton threads used in the ‘The Bruja’.
