Artist Lea Porsager's exhibition [WEAK] FORCE is a promiscuous play between spiritual and quantum physics. The exhibition goes to quantum physics through tantric practice and Kundalini technology. In the exhibition with Lea Porsager you can see, among other works, the work HORNY VACUUM. It consists of a 3D animated film; three telescopic steel horns; two red, inflated 'eco-tech tube walls' used to curb flooding, and a Baculum, a penis bone from a walrus pierced and transformed into a spiritual horn.
Lea Porsagerh has attended a residency programme at CERN - the European Organization for High Energy Physics. Out of this meeting, the exhibition [WEAK] FORCE, inspired by the neutrino, springs. The neutrino is the mysterious elemental particle also called "The Ghost Particle", which physicist Wolfgang Pauli conceived of in 1930. The mass of neutrinos is 100,000 times smaller than the electrons and the body is constantly penetrated by these small particles coming from outer space. Neutrino horns are used for particle tests at CERN. Briefly, the neutrino horn is used to focus a neutrinoflow to a beam. In this way, it becomes possible to study these intangible particles that constantly bombard the earth.
In Porsager's 3D animations, the spectator floats like a neutrino particle through virtual neutrino horns - accompanied by a pulsating sound of gong and mantras. The movies must be experienced With 3D anaglyph glasses on. Porsager's special glasses extend the limited human sensory system with an extra glass - a third eye.
The exhibition is supported by the Obelske Family Fund and the Beckett Foundation. The work HORNY VACUUM is donated to the museum's collection of the New Carlsberg Foundation and has been represented at the 2019 BLOOM festival.
Roskilde Festival and BLOOM are both partners at the exhibition.
The LP is supported by the Augustinus Foundation.
CØSMIC STRIKE is created as part of the Collide International Award, Arts at CERN and FACT, and coproduced by ScANNER. Supported by Danish Arts Foundation.
