Vision Forum at KL.9 in Stockholm
An Infinite Love at Kl.9. takes its inspiration from surgery and love. One of the most obvious and yet hushed up features of being a medical doctor, is the love for the other’s body. This love can transform the violence of the scalpel into healing care. Similarly the artist can transform the ugly, discarded and unwanted into something aesthetically pleasing that moves its audience’s emotions. There are, in other words, parallels between surgery and art. It is love that bring these two universes i dialogue: Love for the body; love for life. A love that is sometimes expressed, with the help of objects that cut and transform. At Kl. 9 we bring objects from the world of art and surgery together. We can look at them and think about their function, aesthetic qualities and what happens when they meet. We let them talk about the love they have experienced, expressed and the transformations they dream of becoming a part of in the future.
