Sarah Oppenheimer: N-1

Please watch your own movement

In close engagement with the building structures of Kunstmuseum Thun, American artist Sarah Oppenheimer (*1972) has developed a network of architectural instruments. Resembling building details such as windows, doors, and columns, each instrument is manually activated by a visitor’s tactile engagement. Turning a door, pushing a window, or pulling a column will transform the dimension and position of multiple thresholds in adjacent rooms. Museum visitors and the architectural instruments participate in a joint performance, resequencing the time-based choreographies of exhibition space.
