The Opaque Palace transforms the exhibition spaces of TENT into an installation of the monumental sculptures of Anne Wenzel.

TENT presents the de solo exhibition Anne Wenzel – The Opaque Palace. The Opaque Palace transforms the exhibition spaces of TENT into an installation in which the monumental sculptures of Anne Wenzel (DE, lives and works in Rotterdam) provide a coherent representation of the major themes in her work – power, destruction, heroism, history – and a new series of sculptures is introduced. From a strong sense of history and political engagement, Anne Wenzel casts new light on the role of art in the representation of power, heroism, and violence.

Daria de Beauvais, from Palais de Tokyo, Paris, has curated the exhibition.
