Hilma af Klint – The Ten Largest

6.10 2022 – 4.1 2023

Stockholm

Come along on a guided tour focusing on spirituality and existentiality in art. We will explore the various ways in which the artist Hilma af Klint expressed spirituality and dimensions beyond our everyday reality, then we will direct our attention inwards in a guided meditation. Welcome!

Together we will explore the various ways in which Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) expressed spirituality or dimensions beyond our everyday reality – encountering the art by being present with all our senses.

Thereafter, art educator Jessica Eldenstjärna will lead a guided meditation. We will start by focusing on our breath and notice what happens to our bodies when we turn our attention inward.

The series “The Ten Largest” by Hilma af Klint is part of a larger collection known as “Paintings for the Temple”, a mammoth project that she had embarked upon after experiencing non-verbal cues from the spirit world. The challenge of understanding these messages and finding a visual expression for an invisible reality was to preoccupy Hilma af Klint throughout the rest of her life.

The guided tour and meditation is held by Jessica Eldenstjärna, art educator at Moderna Museet, Expressive Art Therapist and artist.

Hilma af Klint – The Ten Largest

Meet Hilma af Klint and her series of paintings “The Ten Largest”, when the works are once again on show in the Museum in autumn 2022.

This time the paintings will be exhibited together with a selection of the artist’s watercolours and a complete collection of hand-coloured photographs of “The Ten Largest” that has never previously been shown in its entirety.
