Christian Lemmerz. Dantes Dream, 2010

Cannibalism, mounds of entrails and little homunculi kicking at torn-off heads. Christian Lemmerz’s monumental judgment-day vision Dante’s Dream is not for the faint of heart. The artist’s principal work, which comprises 18 large drawings, was recently acquired by Randers Museum of Art thanks to grants from the New Carlsberg Foundation and other donors.
