Sonja Ferlov Mancoba

A danish avant-garde sculptor

Sonja Ferlov Mancoba (1911-1984) was a part of the Danish avant-garde. At the age of 25 she moved to Paris, where she lived and worked for almost her entire life together with her husband, the artist Ernest Mancoba. An exhibition of her work shows at SMK in Copenhagen until the 5th of may 2019.

" Sonja Ferlov Mancoba is a key figure within Danish modernism. With this exhibition we wish to call attention to an artist who never got the recognition she deserves."
