To Enter a Space

2016| installation

To Enter a Space is an installation in space made out of thin paper sheets and sharp metal cutters. The paper moves due to the wind caused by the movement of the audience in the space.

The work analyses the mechanisms of exhibiting and the autonomy of the object. Paper installation is set up in engagement with the exhibition space on-site. The aim is to make the visitors inherent role as co-author of the piece tangible as well as to expose a showrooms vacuum to be a mere construct. The work renders visible the structural violence of the practice of exhibiting and reflect the artist’s critical approach. The piece focuses on the question of the potential mediability of an objects authentic meaning.
