Elín Hansdóttir : ‘Path’ (Site-Specific Installation)

::

Elín Hansdóttir’s site-specific installations take many forms, including auditory or optical illusions, labyrinthian tunnels and motion-activated architectural elements. Hansdóttir creates self-contained worlds that seem to operate under their own set of rules, completely transforming a benign space into one that defies expectations and seems only to exist at a particular moment in time. Though her site-specific installations are complex in construction and technical craft, they take on a stark aesthetic, so that her work operates as a kind of blank slate for viewer experience and interaction.

Path is a site-specific labyrinthine structure that weaves through each space it inhabits, filling the physical area with its winding course. Each exhibition site dictates the form of the zigzagging tunnel. Working with the boundaries determined by the external space, the structure is outlined directly on the floor, with the objective of having the structure occupy as much of the site as possible, thus creating a unique shape each time. The only light source emanates from vertical and horizontal slits throughout the construction. Due to the structure´s sharp edges, the light is dispersed in such a way that one mistakes shadows for walls, walls for space, and light for walls…
