LEA PORSAGER: STRIPPED
21 November 2020 00:00 - 16 May 2021 00:00
The exhibition builds on ideas and motifs from tantric meditation, religious painting, and quantum theory. This is in line with how artists and spirit mediums have used technology and scientific discoveries – such as electricity, magnetism and radioactivity – to link immaterial and physical realms. The mixing of science and esoteric knowledge was a search for the spiritual, and challenged modern reason.
Porsager leaves forms and materials both excited and exhausted: vulnerable and intense states through which we can tune in to more-than-human forces. When world views collide and openings arise between different realities, it might create a potential for new experiences and pleasures – and for other interpretations of what and how we know.
