[Water In Discovering]
Germany National Museum, Berlin, Germany
Every building has things that people like to point out, quirks of history that come to define it; if presented in that way, figures give to the sign which they produce, literature and that, in turn, is easily appropriated by myth; the artworks supply us with the ever topical, ever desirable presence of a poetic spirit, away from the turmoil of trends and generations, displayed on an eye-level platform that snakes through the gallery, the installation reiterates the performative aspects of the making of the work; we see the image, which is the 'work' produced by the percipient as an event in his or her time. There is a naturalistic quality of light that creates an immediate connection to this as a world we know but yet have never experienced before, the results of the research could have impact across the globe; this art immerses viewers into the magic by which paint transforms itself into things being described and back again. The statement remains obscure until the juxtaposition of all art works in a continuous collective revelation process, Agata Horelli's nearly imperceptible sound paths unconsciously stop the visitors in their tracks; the changes that are theoretically visible over time will never be registered by the eye. This art, a sophisticated gaze, pursues the permanence of a gesture or a presence; consciously or unconsciously, the setting of the image expresses the particular sensitivity of the viewer.
