In the Western understanding of nature, the mineral kingdom is seen as the lowest: Rocks neither bloom nor birth, and seem to be the furthest from man. But as queer individuals, they have traveled a long way to become who they are today: They change from liquid to solid, crystallizing and transforming through time, pressure and erosion. These developments resonate with the bodily and social processes transgender people go through—which sometimes unfold with tectonic slowness, sometimes with volcanic force. The exhibition Bjergtaget works with stone as both material, metaphor and motif in an investigation of queer belonging and loss.

For the opening, writer Cyf Frostholm will read texts about plants, gender and time and Louis André Jørgensen will perform the work Jeg er et tungt og langsomt menneske (I am a heavy and slow person).. The performance is based on text from the artist’s book Det er på tide at stenene blomstrer (It is time for the stones to bloom), which can be purchased at a special price at the opening.
