Britas salon: A fig by Ingela Ihrman
24 August 16:00-17:00
Welcome to take part of Ingela Ihrman’s performance A fig – a silent performance in one act, at the same time both a creation and a disintegration. The fig is a drama queen of sorts, hoping to perhaps also gain praise for its beautiful flesh.
In the exhibition Miss Brunnsviken we are met by a collection of queens, or at least the traces of them, in a play with ideas on beauty and the body. In Ihrman’s art, the supposedly beautiful is often pitted against something violent, disgusting or upsetting.
This performative work is included in the museum’s regular entrance fee on this day. The performance is part of the project Brita’s salon with the support of the Swedish Arts Council.
