This event has ended.

Art in General presents Katrin Siggurdardottir’s Stage, a New Commissions installation in the storefront Project Space.

A miniature theater hangs from the ceiling of an empty, unlit storefront space. A single spotlight illuminates the theater’s stage, casting wild shadows that permeate the space and break through onto the street. The stage hangs precariously, a suspended moment of tension irradiating from within. As the day unfolds and the sun sets, the shadows grow stronger, marking time with their formidable presence. Though lit the stage is empty, the theatrics of such architecture being transposed to the shadow play within the space.

Real and imagined, miniature yet enormous, Katrin Sigurdardóttir’s site-specific installation, Stage, pushes beyond the physical boundaries of the storefront, compelling an immediate, direct, and intimate encounter for the passer-by. Emphasizing the relationship between inside-outside and passage-enclosure, Stage causes viewers to rethink their own perception of space, assuming an unexpected mise-en-scène that blurs what “is”, and what is imagined.
