Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects presented in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, located in the freely accessible exhibition space in the entrance hall of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise.
Sabine Hornig (Germany, lives in Berlin) is known for her photographs, sculptures and installations that distort or intensify our experience of space and time. At first glance, her work can appear deceptively simple, but with a longer look, it becomes evident that it is testing the viewer's perception. This gallery-sized installation, specially produced for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, is no exception. The work consists of an open wooden structure with transparent printed fabric stretched over it on the inside. Handmade architectural elements, including a window sill, table platform and a swinging wall, have been placed on either side of the construction.
Sensory Spaces 2 - Sabine Hornig is on view from 12 October 2013 till 9 February 2014.
