Spatial concept: one complex body
The gallery is kept open plan and not devided. One large object is inserted that enters a dialogue with the existing space and its perimeter walls. An articulated body, or mini- architecture, occupies the centre of the gallery space and offers focus and varying display conditions for the exhibition and its content.
Moving between a horizontal plane setting out a datum (a type of table) and semi-enclosed interior conditions (open rooms) the exhibition architecture creates diverse opportuni- ties for displaying content and organises the visitor’s path. Spaces are being created in and around this piece.
a journey between inside and outside
This exhibition architecture creates six zones of different sizes and shapes which reflect the thematic sections of the exhibition. These zones are linked through a linear path that meanders between inside and outside, enclosed and open conditions.
Each thematic section consists of an immersive art work (semi-enclosed condition) and a thematic territory associated with it with display possibilities on horizontal and vertical sur- faces (open condition).
The immersive works are distributed so they do not compete with each other. The choreography of entrances and exits, their spacing, articulation and orientation aims to produce a varied journey for the visitor and produces the specific sound and light conditions required for each piece. Selected exter- nal windows are opened up to allow daylight to enter the space in the first sections of the exhibition. The visitor moves from light to dark.
