A JOINING OF SPHERIC MATTERS: ART, ARCHITECTURE AND A MEDITATIVE SÉANCE IN THE LIBRARY
Lea Porsager graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, and the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main in 2010, receiving her PhD from the Malmö Art Academy and Lund University in 2021. Porsager’s artistic practice encompasses science, feminism, and esotericism. Porsager’s recent solo exhibitions include Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, 2021; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, 2020-21; FuturDome, Milan, 2020. Porsager participated in various international exhibitions, including dOCUMENTA (13) and the 14th Istanbul Biennial: SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms. 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.
In Porsager’s own words, Repulsive Enchantment (2021) offers a slightly off-kilter tantalizing sensitization, suspended from above as well as below. “Don’t be fooled by this somewhat heavy, outmoded fixture — its magnetic vitality is fierce and undeniable. As such, the thought-forms of Repulsive Enchantment can best be understood as vessels of outrageous intimacies — a joining of spheric and fleshy matters.”
