Birgit Kjærsgaard_ VERDENSRUM V, Japan: Mountain of Sadness
Vitrine U – Kleistpark (U7) in 10783 Berlin
Within the European Month of Photography Berlin:
Exhibition: 22.10. 2020 – 12.12.2020
With this project VERDENSRUM V, Japan: Mountain of Sadness the series VERDENSRUM continues. A TRANS started the collaborating with Birgit Kjærsgaard along this long-term project in
2010, where the first 3D- installation was presented at A trans Pavilion in the Hackesche Höfe, Berlin -Mitte.
VERDENSRUM V, Japan: Mountain of Sadness, a part of Kjaersgaard’s Japanese VERDENSRUM series, is inspired by Osore-zan (the Mountain of Dread) in the Aomori prefecture, a remote volcanic Buddhist pilgrimage destination famously known in Japan as the entrance to ‘the underworld’. It is also said, that, with a spiritual medium as an intermediary, one can make contact there with one’s ancestors.
The visuals as well as the dramaturgy of the installation are inspired by this spectacular landscape, which has spots such as ‘The Lake of Blood’, ‘The River of Souls’, and ‘The Lake of Heaven’.

Opening Performance by Yon Natalie Mik_Black Odonata at Mountain of Sadness
Dancer Yon Natalie Mik is returning as Black Odonata to visit the ‚Mountain of Sadness‘. Passerbys in transit through the underground subway of Berlin are invited to glimpse Black Odonata’s dancerly passage into the Osorezan’s underworld as she crosses ‚The River of Souls‘ to embark on a journey from ‚The Sources of Hell‘ to ‚The Heaven Lake‘. As part of the Japanese Verdensrum Series, The Mountain of Sadness presents a visual landscape installation by artist Birgit Kjærsgaard inspired by the volcanic scene and landmarks of Osorezan in Japan, also famously known as the entrance to the underworld according to Buddhist cosmology.
Yon Natalie Mik is an experimental dancer and performance/dance studies researcher based in Berlin and LA. The performance is presented by A TRANS at Vitrine U-Kleistpark Schöneberg as part of 2020’s theme ‚A Femmes City‘.
