This evening Overgaden invites you to a lecture, reading, and screening in relation to Pia Rönicke’s exhibition The Cloud Document. The different elements of the event are all based on the relationship between language and the idea of the botanical. Rönicke’s video The Cloud Document in which two botanists lead us into the Mexican landscape and through botanical systems will be screened in full length. The German professor of Art and Cultural Science, Hanne Loreck, presents her lecture Hilma af Klint: Botany, Ornaments, Grammars, and Diagrams in which the botanical universe marks the point of departure of her reading of the paintings and drawings by Hilma af Klint. Writer and artist Christian Yde Frostholm will read from his collection of fragmented prose Dagbog af mine blade.
The event will be in English except the reading by Christian Yde Frostholm which will be in Danish.
