A Posthumous Journey into the Future
The international group show A Posthumous Journey into the Future explores fiction and modes of speculative writing and storytelling in contemporary art as a method to create emotional and intellectual understanding of the cultural and planetarian crisis we are in, due to climate change. What can we learn from a romantic and subjective experience of relating to the world, by sensing and imagining? Can a time-leap, neglecting the industrialization produce a framework for alternative ways of living and thoughts? The “Posthumous Journey” can also be understood as a questioning of the anthropocentric point of view, where acknowledging agency in nature also gives space for new imaginaries, opposed to colonial and other hegemonic structures.
Participating artists: Imani Jacqueline Brown, Alma Heikkilä, Johannes Heldén, My Lindh, Mónica de Miranda, Håkan Jonson, Signe Johannessen and Eglė Budvytytė. Curator: Rebecka Wigh Abrahamsson
Inauguration of the piece Time Circuit for Radiotorget in Gothenburg.
The work consists of two heated bronze seat marks set into the staircase facing Radiotorget, and a sculpture with solar cells that heats the seat marks. The seat marks were left by two residents of Radiotorget: a 95-year-old who has lived there since it was built in the 1950s, and a 10-year-old child who had just moved into one of the houses built on the square when the artwork was created. If you sit on a mark, you can be warmed by it and become part of a circuit through time and space, through the energy of the sun as well as those who left their mark.
