What emotions, memories and experiences can an empty, quiet space arouse when being viewed? A living space or a room can be a place that bears witness to how people have lived in it. It appears as an abandoned space that in a poetic or enchanted way – or, indeed, unconsciously – captivates viewers and makes them think of things they themselves experienced. An abandoned theatre awaiting renovation can also induce a melancholy mood. In the exhibition eleven international contemporary artists present their individual exploration of this multi-layered phenomenon.
