Exhibition: Enormous Details – Putput


Electrical sponges, salami and a sex tape

In the exhibition “Enormous Details” shown throughout the public spaces within The Lighthouse, Swiss/Danish artist duo PUTPUT present a collection of accumulated images from projects within the last 5 years. A mix of old and new, showcasing a fascination with everyday objects, advertising and staging.
