SNOOZE (90 Seconds to Midnight)
18.08.23 - 21.10.23
Join us Thursday, September 28th at 16:30-17:30 for an artist talk with Lea Porsager introducing her current exhibition in the gallery: SNOOZE (90 Seconds to Midnight).
SNOOZE (90 Seconds to Midnight) marks Lea Porsager’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. Lea Porsager is an artist whose works play out in the triangular tension between quantum physics, tantric practices, and feminist theory. Her practice interweaves speculation, fabulation and materialization within a variety of mediums, including film, sculpture, text, and earth works.
