Exhibition titles are:

New Clothes for the Fairytales – Liu Jin’s photographic take on Denmark
Danish Cool displays the ground-breaking work of late Danish photographer Keld Helmer-Petersen. The exhibition offers an exclusive insight into his artistic experiments with photography and photobooks and it is furthermore the premiere of Helmer-Petersen’s work in China.
New Clothes for the Fairytales – Liu Jin’s photographic take on Denmark presents a new series of twisted and distorted fairytales by Chinese artist, Liu Jin from his artist-in-residency in Denmark in 2015. For settings embedded with Hans Christian Andersen’s mild wisdom, the artist has weaved new clothes that allow us to see the timepieces in a more contemporary and timeless way.
