The exhibition project Psychopathia Sexualis, curated by Mathias Kryger, presents a performance by Cassie Augusta Jørgensen.
In 1912, the Ballets Russes’ Vaslav Nijinsky shook the Paris of the time when he masturbated on stage at Théâtre du Châtelet while dressed as a faun. 100 years later, artist, chorographer, and dancer Cassie Augusta Jørgensen (b.1991, DK) brings to light Nijinsky’s performance through an artistic remake and continuance that insists on free sexuality.
This performance a part of an afternoon that focuses on Queer / Liberation with painting, literature, and performance. The paintings in Ida Sønder Thorhauge’s exhibition Between Eternity and Time show a dreamlike universe of androgyne figures, and the exhibition Psychopathia Sexualis focuses on (psycho)pathologized sexualities. In their own ways, both exhibitions deal with liberation—a theme further explored in the events this Saturday: by this performance and in an Artist Talk w. visual artist Ida Sønder Thorhauge and author Nazila Kivi at 3pm
The afternoon program is free and no registration is needed. Drinks will be available to buy via Mobilepay.
The performance is part of a program supported by Ny Carlsbergfondet.
