Create new waves in a Horny Vacuum

The Danish artist Lea Porsager will exhibit a 3D animation from the installation Horny Vacuum at this year’s Roskilde Festival. Porsager’s 3D animation illustrates the inner parts of a so-called Neutrino Horn – seen from the Neutrino’s point of view – accompanied by the pulsing sound of a gong. The audience will experience the movie with 3D anaglyph glasses. The limited human sensory system is further expanded with an extra lens on the pair of 3D glasses – a third eye.

Horny Vacuum is inspired by Porsager’s visit to CERN in 2018 and seeks a promiscuous play between the spiritual and quantum physics. Porsager explores the neutrino particle through tantric practice and Kundalini technology – a meditative and energising form of yoga. In Horny Vacuum the esoteric and the scientific are united and create new waves.

Lea Porsager graduated in 2010 from Städelschule, the art academy of Frankfurt am Main, and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In 2015, Porsager started her position as a Ph.d. student at the Malmö Art Academy and Lund University. “Horny Vacuum” is supported by the New Carlsberg Foundation and is carried out in collaboration with the Danish Museum for Contemporary Art and Bloom – Festival for nature and science.
