Upcoming artist talks

24 September 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).

The artist talk will be held in English.

19 November at 17.00: Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung
