Francis Alÿs

Children’s Games


– 10.04.23

Next autumn, we are proud to present a major solo exhibition featuring Francis Alÿs for the first time in Scandinavia. Alÿs is known for his engaging and poetic video films created over the past three decades.

Observing everyday situations around the world, he zooms in on moments of a playful, poetic, and political nature. Experience his major video installation Children’s Games at CC, showing video footage of situations from around the world where children play classic children’s games. With humanity and insight into local conditions, Alÿs captures how children’s games add meaning and often repeat rituals, symbols, and traditions that traverse cultures.

Alÿs was born in Belgium but relocated to Mexico where he has lived since 1986. He will represent Belgium at the 2022 Venice Biennale.
