‘Dominique De Groen meets Hilma af Klint’

17 Feb. →
21 May'23

We know that Hilma af Klint was fascinated by the occult and the esoteric. In light of the Swedish Ecstasy exhibition, Dominique De Groen has taken inspiration from this iconic Swedish artist. Surrounded by the paintings of the exhibition, she will be delivering a poetry performance in tribute to the spiritual universe of Hilma af Klint. She will take the audience on a ritual journey, consisting of incantations and guided collective meditation. Within the circle there is space for the invisible, the occult: an evocation of female spiritual entities and the restless spirits of animals and plants. 

Dominique De Groen is an author and visual artist. She has published the poetry collections Shop Girl (2017), Sticky Drama (2019) and Slangen (2022) through Het Balanseer, and she has been honoured with the 2019 Frans Vogel Poetry Prize and the 2022 Jan Campert Prize.
