Leyla Aydoslu: Helene Müllers Balcony

6 April - 4 May 2024

Looking for a delicate equilibrium between presence and confrontation, Aydoslu sets the stage for a scenario where the spectator becomes an active participant. 

'Gaining a comprehensive understanding necessitates considering various perspectives. You can't count on your gaze having been multiple enough the first time around. Viewers have to move along and put in effort. The human body shares the location with the sculpture, inevitably assuming an equal footing with the object that's sometimes even obstructing the view. The pendulum between awareness of presentation and the taking up of space continues to rock back and forth.'
