Conversation
1:1 conversations with Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed
15 Jun, 13:00 – 20 Jul 2022, 18:00

Every Wednesday you can meet Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed in the exhibition Heavy Body, Heavenly Body for a personal conversation about the works: How do the exhibition’s drawings and voices resonate with you?

Every Wednesday from 15 June to 20 July, during O—Overgaden’s opening hours (13–18h) you can meet Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed in her exhibition Heavy Body, Heavenly Body. In place of the textual layer of mediation that is so typical for an art exhibition, Haj-Mohamed makes the individual visitor experience and interpersonal meeting the focus for a conversation about the exhibition’s artworks.

A short introduction to the exhibition

The audience is invited to come up close when Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed presents their first institutional solo exhibition including a comprehensive display of drawings. The drawings were all created over a three-year period that, for the artist, was marked by sorrow and transformation. The drawings are meditations on existence, on what has come and what has not yet come to an end, and can be seen as visualizations of the artist’s own internal journey through life. 

The meditative drawings are accompanied by the audience-generated performance piece Nothing That Goes Through Me Belongs to Me (2022), which is based on a script written by Haj-Mohamed, created specifically for the exhibition. Furthermore, during the opening hours on Wednesdays, Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed will invite exhibition visitors to an open one-to-one conversation, centering around their reading of the artworks.
