A crucifix on a fridge, a gilt cardboard box, and a used Mercedes engine. The internationally acclaimed Danish-Vietnamese artist Danh Vo conquers x-rummet at the National Gallery of Denmark with a subtly humorous exhibition that links personal history with wider cultural and political issues. The exhibition “Hip Hip Hurrah” marks Vo’s first solo representation in Denmark.
