Immerse yourself in the thought-provoking and sometimes bewildering artworks featured in Installation Art.
This artistic genre rejects the passive viewing of framed artwork and encourages an interactive and often theatrical experience, drawing the viewer into the artwork, and sometimes even transforming the viewer into part of it. Marvel at a room repurposed into a giant musical instrument, imagine pressing into walls quilted in fabric, or feel the excitement of jumping in a giant plastic balloon.
The artists make use of both museum space and unexpected locations, such as parks, retail shops, or even metro stations to create new realities through the manipulation of all aspects of one’s environment — sight, sound, space, light and touch. Includes artists’ conceptual drawings.
