Golden Insider — 81 Inflated Facets

 

By way of kundalini technology and quantum entanglement, Golden Insider—81 Inflated Facets finds its nub in the world of mind-bending ideas. In kundalini technology, it is believed that the mind has eighty-one facets. Positive (“+”), negative (“-”), and neutral (“=”) emotions flood the mind, blurring and distort- ing thought-processes.

 

Golden Insider—81 Inflated Facets does not concern itself with the human mind, but with the matrixial mind of the microorganism slime mold. Metal and microorganisms become agents of thoughts in their various entangled materializations.

 

Lea Porsager graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, and the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, in 2010. She began her studies as a PhD candidate at Malmö Art Academy and Lund University in September 2015. Porsager’s practice interweaves fabulation and speculation with a variety of mediums, including film, sculpture, photography, and text. Her works encompass science, politics, feminism, and esotericism.

 

She is represented by Nils Stærk Gallery, Copenhagen. Her recent solo exhibitions include In Moderna Museet in Stockholm (2020/21), Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde 2019; Nils Stærk, Copenhagen, 2016; Brandts, Odense, 2016; Göttingen Kunstverein, 2015; Overgaden, Copenhagen, 2015; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, 2015; Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Høvikodden, 2013; and Emily Harvey Foundation, New York, 2013.

 

In 2012, Porsager participated in dOCUMENTA (13) with Anatta Experiment. In 2015, Porsager partook in the 14th Istanbul Biennial: SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms as Annie Besant’s “medium,” recreating thirty-six of Besant’s watercolours from the book Thought-Forms: A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation (1905).

Exhibitions: Moderna-utställningen 2014: Society Acts, Moderna Museet, Malmö, SE, curated by Andreas Nilsson; Ring-Pass-Not, Göttingen Kunstverein, Göttingen, DE, 2015, curated by Kordula Fritze-Srbic; Survival Kit 8, festival, Riga, Latvia, 2016, curated by Solvita Krese and Inga Lāce.
