Lau & Maak - Fairy Tales

In the exhibition ”Fairy Tales”, the artists Lasse Lau and Flo Maak present a small handful of works focusing on sexuality and identity creation.

Lau and Maak’s works are often based on the private sphere by using the kitchen, food or sex toys as markers that directly and indirectly comment on LGBTQ+ people’s condition over time. By using the symbols of a fist, slogans, a weeping fig and the rooster known from Kellogg's Cornflakes, the artist duo stages the themes sex, gender and activism in a humorous and though-provoking way. The exhibition was created on the occasion of Copenhagen Pride 2021, which takes place in the capital August 12 – 22.

Lasse Lau (b. 1974 in Denmark) and Flo Maak (b. 1980 in Germany) have collaborated since 2006. They live and work in Brooklyn and Copenhagen, respectively, as well as in Berlin. Their works have been shown in Mexico, USA, Germany, Denmark and South Korea.
