/FOOD FOR THE MOON/ — Sluggish and Well-lubricated is an artist book by Lea Porsager, edited by Synnøve B. Brøgger and the artist herself. The book was made in connection with Porsager's exhibition FOOD FOR THE MOON — Sluggish and Well-lubricated (2013), commissioned by Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK) and curated by Milena Hoegsberg.
“We are like the moon’s sheep, which it cleans, feeds and shears, and keeps for its own purposes.... The moon is man’s big enemy.”
George I. Gurdjieff (1866?–1949)
In addition to covering the exhibition at HOK and featuring essays by Milena Hoegsberg and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, the book "gropingly handles all of Lea Porsager’s works that in turn have gropingly handled aspects of spiritual teacher G.I. Gurdjieff’s brainy legacy, dubbed Porsager’s G.I.G. Slime Series (2008–2014). /FOOD FOR THE MOON/ — Sluggish and Well-lubricated can be viewed as its culmination, with every leftover drop of Beelzebubic ejaculate accounted for."
Book launch at Kunstnernes Hus, Friday the 7th of February, 17.30–19.30, with a short introduction by the artist. A selection of copies will be sold at the discounted price of 150 NOK (half price).
Kunstnernes Hus will screen films from previous works featured in the book's G.I.G. Slime Series continuously throughout the evening.
