Framework 1: extrasensory bonds
Sidsel Christensen / Leif Elggren and Thomas Liljenberg / Kimmo Modig / nova Milne / Lea Porsager / Robert Steijn / The Telepathy Project
For »Framework 1: extrasensory bonds« insitu collective invites seven international artists to present their investigations into extraordinary forms of communication such as channeling a higher power, reaching out to one’s own past- or future-self or understanding the world through their dreams. By adapting methods such as hypnosis, telepathy, dream analysis or card-reading, the artists all open a door to intangible forces, some with a quite humorous approach.
Through this exhibition, insitu collective intends to explore not only alternative forms of communication, but also to discuss the human need behind it – the desire to connect with something beyond our understanding, and belief in indefinable powers, however differently they might be imagined. In that sense the exhibition is designed as a laboratory space for visitors to experience unusual connections themselves. The audience is welcome to try out self-hypnosis, artistic healing methods or register for a fortune telling session to discover their own extrasensory bonds.
»Framework 1: extrasensory bonds« is part of insitu collective's Cycle II, a series of exhibitions on the topic of ‘relationships, networks and connections' in which insitu collective established a series of formats or 'frameworks' for invited artists and curators to respond to.
