What does a single person require in order to dissociate his thoughts from the environment and engross with something else? With some new world and a new environment? Magma Architecture has decided, that the simplest way to do this is to provide your mind with different space: then everything changes and vision is not constrained with plenty of unnecessary objects, which our environment is usually full of. Consequently, our vision concentrates on most important things and in this instance it is shape, material and imagery of an artist.
This installation could have been viewed in contemporary art, photography and architecture museum in Berlin. Having an elaborated title IN/IM KOPF/In Head installation is up for exploring peculiarities of material, colour, light and shape. An object is made from orange fabric attached to ceiling, floor and walls. This component is clearly distinguished in the context of exhibition and it shapes a space for a visitor to put his head inside and in this way bend to tinier details.
A visitor crouches down, puts his head into a hole of the orange fabric and then he is able to view drawings, models and photographs displayed in the exhibition. These showpieces were wired and all made by Magma Architecture. Project was created by Anke Noske, Hendrik Bohle, Dominik Jörg, Lena Kleinsheine, Ksenia Kagler, Yohko Mizushima, Lena Kleinheinz, Martina Osterman and Ben Reynolds. Of course, it’s quite difficult to imagine this installation, perhaps the video will help you out.
Magma was established in 2003 by Martin Osterman and Lena Kleinheinz. The former is especially famous for her experiments, fresh ideas as well as creativity. This project proves it well and I hope you will enjoy it.
