Flower Drop. Introducing Molly Haslund is a richly illustrated English-language introduction to the work of Danish artist Molly Haslund, with essays by Karen Vestergaard Andersen, Sanne Kofod Olsen, Miriam Frandsen, and Gabriela Jauregui that contextualise and elucidate Haslund’s practice from different perspectives. Karen Vestergaard Andersen looks at her work in the context of recent Danish art history, while Sanne Kofod Olsen explores a single performance work in depth. The interview between Miriam Frandsen and Haslund discusses her work in the context of theatre and Haslund’s time in Glasgow, and Gabriela Jauregui has written a form of love letter to the artist and her work.
The selection of projects illustrated in Flower Drop. Introducing Molly Haslundhighlights Haslund’s unusual talent for staging situations and rituals from our everyday lives. She isolates them in ways that draw out the humour, oddity and touching qualities of our interactions, collective behaviour and identity formation, whether as performances, outsize objects or musical compositions. Molly Haslund’s artistic practice is a rich and diverse example of social aesthetics, which we might read as a particularly Nordic answer to international currents such as relational aesthetics.
