Looking at the Women in the Museum

For Looking at the Women in the Museum, I’d like to take the research that I’ve been doing for my book, Looking at the Woman in a Bomb Blast, and apply it to a new piece of performance in the context of some works in the Konstmuseum. I’ll purchase approximately 15 tickets for the museum and advertise a talk in the Furstenberg Galleries. During this I’ll explore, and inhabit, the gestures of a number of women shown in paintings and sculptures in the collection, ending with Hasselberg’s Näckrosen. This work was completed after Hasselberg died; the model, Signe Larsson, bore Hasselberg’s child. I’ll also produce a small pamphlet to accompany the event.
