Upcoming artist talks

Dora Budor

12 November at 17.00: Dora Budor

Dora Budor (b. 1984, Croatia) is a New York based artist. Using installation, environment, sound and sculpture, her works are constructed as complex systems in which each element exists in interdependency. One of the main concerns is how meaning is constructed and circulated through materials and images. Her works often respond to context and site in which they are exhibited, reacting and negotiating their initial conditions, which leads to engaging with cinematic ecosystems, architectural constellations and infrastructural conditions.

Budor has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. Her recent solo exhibitions include Kunsthalle Basel (2019), 80WSE (2018), Ramiken Crucible (2016) and Swiss Institute (2015). Her work has been presented in numerous group exhibitions, including Whitney Museum of American Art, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo, Swiss Institute, Museum Fridericianum, Kunsthalle Biel, La Panacee Montpellier, Halle für Kunst und Medien, MOCA Belgrade, K11 Art Museum, David Roberts Art Foundation, as well as in 9th Berlin Biennial, Vienna Biennale, Art Encounters 2017, 13th Baltic Triennial, 16th Istanbul Biennial, 2nd Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art, and Geneva Sculpture Biennale 2020.

Budor was a recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Emerging Artist Prize in 2014 and Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant in 2018. In 2019, she was awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship.
In 2022, Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria will present her largest solo exhibition to date.

3 December at 17.00: Lea Porsager

In November, 2020, Lea Porsager opens her first major solo exhibition in Sweden at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. The exhibition will consist entirely of new works made for the occasion. In her lecture in the series KHM x MMM at Moderna Museet Malmö, Lea Porsager will present her artistic practice and the energy work embedded in it. From excited particles at CERN to monstrous apparatuses and spiritual vibrations.

Lea Porsager (b. 1981, Frederikssund, Denmark) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main in 2010. Her works encompass science, politics, feminism and esotericism, and interweaves fabulation and speculation with a variety of mediums including film, sculpture, photography and text.

In 2015 Lea Porsager began her studies as a PhD fellow at Malmö Art Academy and Lund University. Her PhD project CUT-SPLICE THOUGHT-FORMS looks at the quantum effects of spiritual visions, based on physicist Karen Barad’s theory of Agential Realism. Porsager explores how the cutsplicing of seemingly conflicting phenomena—quantum physics, spiritual paradigms and lubricated feminism— can serve as trailblazers for radical tentacular thinking and practices.

In 2012, Lea Porsager participated in dOCUMENTA(13) with the Anatta Experiment, and in 2015, Porsager took part in the 14th Istanbul Biennial Saltwater: a Theory of Thought Forms as Annie Besant’s “medium,” recreating thirty-six of Besant’s watercolors from the book Thought Forms (1905). Porsager’s earthwork and memorial Gravitational Ripples was inaugurated in June 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden, commemorating the Swedish lives lost in the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia. Lea Porsager was selected CERN Honorary Mentions for the Collide International Award 2018.

Porsager’s most recent solo exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art (Roskilde, 2019), Nils Stærk, (Copenhagen, 2016), Brandts (Odense, 2016), Göttingen Kunstverein (Göttingen, 2015), Overgaden (Copenhagen, 2015), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin, 2015), Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (Høvikodden, 2013) and The Emily Harvey Foundation (New York, 2013).
