Using multiple media, including light installations and cartographic drawings stylising real movements, Vietnamese artist Chung depicts the situations affecting refugees and the extraordinary responses and abandonment that result.
Chung incorporates her refugee experiences into her recent works and new pieces for her first exhibition in Denmark.

Free booklets and guided tours accompany the showing, and the exhibition includes a debate on November 6 about European civil society responses to the migrant crisis. (JM)
