The sculptor Sif Itona Westerberg is taking the Danish art scene by storm. She works with motives from the world of Ancient Greece, but instead of smooth marble, she creates a contrasting expression with reliefs carved in aerated concrete.
Hear Westerberg talk about her practice and her passion for ancient art and mythology when the Glyptotek and Art Week invite you to an artist talk in the Glyptotek’s Central Hall. The talk will be in Danish.
Host of the evening is journalist Maja Nyvang Christensen, program planner and radio host at ‘Kulturen’, DR P1.
