Italian artist Monica Bonvicini explores concept of space in exhibition at Berlinische Galerie

 

When you walk inside Italian artist Monica Bonvicini’s exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie, the experience you encounter is not just a visual one.

There’s a door that slams behind you once you’re inside, a sound that echoes throughout the gallery, and there’s a giant tassel made out of leather belts that sways around the room. (Visitors are even warned to give it a wide berth because the swinging pattern does not appear entirely predictable).

Marlene Melchior brings you the sounds of the exhibition and talks with Bonvicini about the concept behind it.
