Open Forum at the Museum Ovartaci on 14th of March, 4 - 6 pm
We would cordially like to invite you to participate in an Open Forum at the Museum Ovartaci on 14th of March, 4 - 6 pm, at the lounge area in the current special exhibition of Kathrine Ærtebjerg.
The two artists Lena Mai Merle, Hanna Råst and Brian Benjamin Hansen, PhD in Philosophy, Senior associate professor at Center for Professional Studies, VIA University College, Aarhus/DK together with Georg Schwarz, developer at Museum Ovartaci,welcome you to a conversation about art, trauma and mental health, responsibilities of institutions and society, as well as subjectivity, roles, names, artist and fools. This forum is inspired by Ovartacis experience and his beautiful hay machines.
Short info about the two artists:
Lena Mai Merle (NZ/D) is an intermedial artist working with painting and performance.
Currently a Maltair resident at the Maltfabrikken/Ebeltoft, she is researching the depiction of a falling-out-of-character and Verrücktheit. As part of that journey, she conceptualizes different forms of experimental open forums.
Hanna Råst from Finland is a Helsinki-based visual artist working on lens-based media, installations and text. The main themes of her artistic practice and interest are memory and trauma. Currently, she is doing an artistic research at Maltfabrikken/Ebeltoft residency for her upcoming works. She was introduced to Ovartaci through Lena Mai Merle and immediately fell in love with the museum concept and story of Ovartaci.
After the talk the museum invites to a drink.
Free entry for the event.
We are all looking forward to seeing you!!!
