Leslie Thornton’s exhibition GROUND is currently on view at Kunstverein Nürnberg. In conjunction with this she will screen her new film “Ground” (2020) on Zoom, followed by a conversation with Milan Ther, Director of the Kunstverein Nürnberg on Tuesday, July 7th at 18h CET.
Spanning a period of four decades, Thornton is known for her body of work that moves between film, photography, and installation. In her film “Ground” (2020), she outlines the coming into form of a reality in which the ground or base – like the ground of a painting or the physical ground that human existence has always been pulled toward by gravity – becomes undefined. Containing material from residencies at the scientific institutions CERN and Caltech, “Ground” seems to imply a process of decay: the decay or loosening of indexical relationships through which reality has historically been consolidated.
The lecture by Leslie Thornton is part of the project Initiative for Questioning Innovation (I?I), which is initiated by the Academy of Fine Arts and the Technical University of Nuremberg with the Kunstverein Nürnberg and supported by the LEONARDO Center for Creativity and Innovation.
