Please join us for the book launch of '0' by Lene Baadsvig Ørmen, published by Hordaland Kunstsenter and Lugemik.
Exploring Lene’s strong anthropological interest – the publication invites us to think about the conceptions we have about the natural and the artificial, and about the relationship between animals and humans as they have played out in different cultures and throughout history.
Through a wide range of images, the almost sculptural monograph unveils the artist’s works and exhibitions in dialogue with newly commissioned texts and interviews by Jan Verwoert, Milena Høgsberg, Leah Beeferman, Ki Nurmenniemi and Cecilie Løveid.
The book launch consists of a conversation between Lene, Mathijs van Geest and Indrek Sirkel. Mathijs van Geest is director of Hordaland Kunstsenter, curator of Lene’s exhibition 'Subterranea' in 2020 and editor of the publication.
Indrek Sirkel is the designer of ‘0' as well as co-publisher via Lugemik -an independent publishing initiative based in Tallinn, Estonia, founded in 2010 by graphic designer Indrek Sirkel and artist Anu Vahtra
