Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen: Sensory Spaces – Anne Hardy
Sensory Spaces 13 –Anne Hardy
I’m delighted to curate the 13th edition of Sensory Spaces with Anne Hardy. Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects in the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the exhibition space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise.

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’.
