Lea Porsager - [?!]
An in-depth introduction to the artistic practice of Lea Porsager.
This comprehensive monograph documents Porsager's many types of making, whether experiments, sculptures, 3D animations, or texts. Porsager's practice persistently preserves space for instability. Through fluctuating material agency, her work meditates on excited and exhausted states—in particles as well as bodies. New and republished essays delve into Porsager's proclivity for experimentation, speculations, and manifestations that collide different concepts of energy, knowledge, and spirituality.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition “Lea Porsager – Stripped” at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in 2020-2021.
Born 1981 in Frederikssund (Denmark), Lea Porsager lives and works in Copenhagen. Her practice interweaves fabulation and speculation with a variety of mediums, including film, sculpture, photography, and text. Her works encompass science, politics, feminism, and esotericism.
Edited by Milena Høgsberg and Lea Porsager.
Texts by Lars Bang Larsen, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Milena Høgsberg, Jeppe Ugelvig, Lea Porsager & Synnøve B. Brøgger.
