Apolonia Sokol portait, 2024 by Rita Blue

Please join us on Sunday 14 April at 6–7pm, for a conversation between artist Apolonia Sokol and O—Overgaden’s Director, Rhea Dall.

The talk will focus on Sokol’s current duo exhibition with Zahna Siham Benamor, The False Rose of Jericho, at O—Overgaden. The show raises shared questions of exiled identities—from the rootless flower, the so-called False Rose of Jericho, to cultural figures and stereotypes such as the nomad and the wandering Jew.

The conversation will be conducted in Danish.

You are welcome to visit the exhibitions at O—Overgaden before the talk.
