Lea Porsager, How to Program and Use T-F

Lea Porsager har lige åbnet udstillingen How to Program and Use T-F på Fotografisk Center. Teksten allernederst efter citatet fra pressemeddelelsen er en afskrift af den tekst, der er projiceret på en væg i udstillingen. Porsager har layoutet udstillingsplakaten, og der er lavet en lille folder til udstillingen som Porsager også har layoutet, men ikke skrevet. Den kan læses i et mystisk onlinereader format.

HOW TO PROGRAM AND USE T-F
LEA PORSAGER

Hvordan ser tanker ud? Kan de antage fysisk form? Det er nogle af de spørgsmål billedkunstneren Lea Porsager undersøger på sin udstilling How to Program and Use T-F i Fotografisk Center.

Fotografisk Center er meget stolte over at kunne byde velkommen til denne soloudstilling med helt nye værker af Lea Porsager lavet specielt til Fotografisk Centers lokaler.

Med udgangspunkt i en historisk teori om tanke-former, der blev præsenteret af to teosoffer Annie Besant og C. W. Leadbeater i 1901, arbejder Lea Porsager med tanker som fysiske fænomener. På udstillingen har tankerne dels form af to såkaldte satellitter, der ligger på gulvet, af skulpturelle objekter i bronze og jern, og projektioner på væggen. De to satellitter på gulvet repræsenterer henholdsvis kunsthistorisk og teknologisk lagring af tanker, mens objekterne fremstiller tankerne i deres direkte, fysiske udtryk.

Lea Porsager arbejder gerne med temaer som spiritualisme, okkultisme og åndsvidenskab. Hun undersøger konkrete teorier eller eksperimenter som i How to Program and Use T-F eller projektet til dOCUMENTA (13), Anatta Experiment.

I forbindelse med How to Program and Use T-F udgiver Fotografisk Center en lille formidlingspublikation, der ligesom udstillingsplakaten er designet af Lea Porsager selv. Samtidig laver Porsager et bogprojekt i samarbejde med Internationalistisk Ideale.

T-F 1 Ego hard drives, susceptible to ideological drifts

T-F 2 Endless reproductions of frayed brown ideas and doctrines

T-F 3 The psychometric event of beeing caught between a rock and a hard place had caused the Programmers spasmodic “cool thinking” to materialize.

In a state of rare extremism, odd selfishness and unpleasant depression, the novice T-F Programmer met up with the Cyber Pioneer, one so seemingly connected, so thorougley networked to the extent of beeing downright clairvoyant.

Breezily bouncing off surrounding grids of communication satellites, this vertically challanged, multi-angular and neurally plastic Cyber Pioneer left the Programmer to her own lame devices.

While the Cyber Pioneer spoke in a foreign tongue, the Programmer reached into the astral plane and pulled out a mutated mental entity, a T-F 3. It landed on her lap, on her knees and in her open hands. Shaped like some kind of boomerang, it was heavy and cold despite its dark brown color. On the horizon, right where the earth’s surface began, another one hung blunt and cold. Above it lingered another shape, a silver bullet.

It was as if these cool thought-forms themselves had willed their own matter into beeing. Opaque, inaccessible, heavy, meticulous and anti-plastic, it was as if the T-F 3 refused to become anything more or less than thoughts embodied.

Lets assume for a moment that the Cyber Pioneer’s connectedness equalled panoptic vision. Let us furthermore assume that this vision – however casual and webby – is a potential power-tool for thought control. Let us then assume that these T-F 3 thought-bodies – sovereign in their matter-ness – disdainfully reflect the eye back to its beholder, resistant as they are to flattery, influence, control and judgement in any way, shape or form. And finally, let us assume that connectedness is synonymous with an outlandish state of exhaustion. That only in the very center of the purple and brown fog, an inorganic spark can be found. Thank you, thank you, thank you. T-F 3 the Shield. The Sturdy Mental Explosion. O!
