New Shelter Plan Exhibition Space is experience exhibited.
This exhibition takes its title from the name of the exhibition space itself – New Shelter Plan. As a consequence of the work being defined as the experience within the exhibition space.
The work is mediated through an 18 meters long and 2 meters tall wall of glass. Its dimensions are determined by the length of the room and the height of a human. Through the qualities of transparency, reflection and refraction, the glass activates a dialogue between the room and its visitors. The glass acts as a continuously changing record, a transforming image, exposed with and reflecting activities within the exhibition space. An unfixed and ever developing image, moving with the present.
In this work the defining lines between art and architecture, scenography and choreography, situation and exhibition, are blurred. New Shelter Plan Exhibition Space exists through the encounters it generates.
As you move, you move the work.
