Sensory Spaces 13: Anne Hardy
Delighted to be the guest curator of Sensory Spaces #13, a series of commissioned solo projects presented in one of the gallery spaces of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, which is located in the freely accessible space in the museum’s entrance hall, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise. The artist of my choice is: Anne Hardy.
Sensory Spaces 13 – Anne Hardy
For the thirteenth edition of Sensory Spaces, Hardy is presenting a new ‘FIELD work’ inspired by the city of Rotterdam. It is an atmospheric space with rustling curtains of videotape, curled shapes on the floor and a specially created audio landscape. Visitors enter an animated, parallel world in which everything moves and changes. Hardy describes it as a ‘sentient, poetic space’ that makes us aware of ‘the slippery nature of our perception of the world’.
