Rasmus Myrup

Salon des Refusés

La Criée, Rennes France


01/06/2024 –
– 08/09

From January to April, 1646 had the pleasure of hosting Rasmus Myrup’s folkloric folks in The Hague. The exhibition was a collaboration with La Criée, in Rennes (France), where the creatures have now travelled to! You can visit them there from June 1st until September 8th.

The folkloric folks, who have been ousted from modern normativity, embody ancient legends in a contemporary form. These mythological beings invite us to think about the need for imagination and how diversity needs to be celebrated and protected. In Salon des Refusés Rasmus Myrup re-reads the sources of the past and brings forth their sensuous, queer and progressive characters.

At the moment, you can also meet some of the creatures at Kunsthalle Münster.

The new work in Salon des Refusés is co-produced with the Gothenburg Biennale, and curated by João Laia.



About Rasmus Myrup (Born 1991, Copenhagen) is a Danish artist, whose work seeks to explore how the experience of being human is malleable – and how susceptible it is; at its worst to manipulation and at its best to change. With roots in our belonging to the natural realm, Myrup investigates the big narratives of humanity’s existence, evolution and history through the lens of small, personal and intimate emotions. Through his sculptures, installations and drawings, he seeks to understand other times, species and worlds – and in that way everything from Neanderthals to trees or folklore can provide new perspectives on our understanding of death, sex and power. His recent solo exhibitions include Precoming at O – Overgaden (DK), Vertreibzeit at Kunstverein Göttingen (DE) and Slut [The End] at Jack Barrett (US).
