Kimsooja - Gazing Into Sphere

Kimsooja - Gazing Into Sphere

20.01.2018 - 07.04.2018
Gazing into Sphere (2018) is a site-specific installation by the artist Kimsooja. It recontextualizes the architecture of a former gin distillery and invites visitors to a new spatial experience. Spanning the entire ground surface of the Escher Gallery is a mirror that unfolds and expands the interior void, rendering the architectural envelop as the work itself, within which the audience is embraced. This horizontal plane echoes the memory of the site inscribed in bold circular voids once used to hold malting silos, while transcending traces of history into a new corporeal experience.

The exhibition’s title, “Ibant Obscuri”, is a quote from Virgil’s The Aeneid, which also shares its name with a black marble sculpture featured in the installation.
