Challenging our sense and perception of space and movement, Shift, is an installation work consisting of four semi-transparent curtains that move in the room. Each curtain is 15 meters long and 5 meters tall, hung on four motorised rails. Creating pas- sages without beginning and without end, it transforms the room into a space that is constantly adapting. We experience the mo- tion of the curtains as formless and opaque.
Shift is exhibited in the Sculpture Hall at Brandts 13, and turns the room into a constant ow of new, temporary space constel- lations. The curtains’ movement forms temporary spaces and proposes new encounters between space and people. The work conveys an afterthought about how our bodies sense and read a room.
The curtains change individually on the rails, controlled by a computer algorithm according to the principle of coincidence. The view of the surrounding space is transformed by the un- predictable motion of the curtains, and the physical relation and visual connection between people in the room is altered by the curtains’ materiality. The duplication and overlap of the layers enhances the colours of the curtains and reduces the transpar- ency. In their movement the curtains form temporary passages in the room, continuously being created and erased, they reframe the meeting between man and space.
