Spin ϕ
opens June 6; Overgaden, Overgaden Neden Vandet 17, Cph K; overgaden.org
Danish artist Lea Porsager invites you to participate in her thought experiment. What if quantum physics was discovered through a series of ‘births’?

In particular, she creates a link between Helena P Blavatsky, the Russian creator of theosophy, British women’s rights activist Annie Besant, Danish physicist Niels Bohr and German chancellor Angela Merkel through their ideals.

In true Porsager fashion, the exhibition will include metal beams. Within these beams her vision is explored through various mediums including sculpture, photography and film. (MD)
