2019 / light installation


The installation is inspired by the architecture of the exhibition space. Fully aware that its function was far from sacral before, I commit a premeditated mystification and explicitly emphasize its false associations. I build an altar. The building centreline is crowned with a locum sacrum, a luminous niche. Entering the niche - one replaces the idol and at the same time acquires a new perspective of the exhibition space – it becomes a ritual act attributed to the altar. By assuming this iconic stand of mastering the bigness (after: R. Koolhaas; Bigness or the problem of the Large) each viewer becomes an immanent part of the exhibition, fits into the object, complements the com- position. This gesture turns going through the building space into a series of experiences and the architecture itself becomes active. From darkness towards the light, through a change of perspective, to transgression.
