This project considers the process of designing for future museum and gallery display. It challenges the NGV Contemporary gallery as a site for spatial experimentation.
By introducing reflective surfaces and framing structures into the gallery and the showcases, the exhibition display becomes a viewing apparatus for experiencing the artwork and the space simultaneously. Within the work there is a desire to create an active subject, who is empowered through the experience of physical participation.
The work engages with surfaces within the gallery space, allowing the subject’s image within the space to collapse and for a fleeting moment become displayed as one with the artwork.
