Since 2014, aquabitArt Gallery has been inviting various artists and architects to realize a site-specific project that addresses the interrelationship between Architecture and Art.

About

The installations influence the perception in the city and contribute confidently to the art landscape in Berlin.

Often we imagine the world as endless. The circle of life we experience has a beginning and an end, but it is infinite in its repetition. We all have our path in life, which is build by frames of moments and experiences. It is our decision to step out and see the whole infinite line from a different perspective. And it is our decision to step back into the path again, with new insights. This is, at least, what we imagine …

Peter Vink builds the site-specific installation „Aquabit“, exclusively interacting with the space of the gallery. He uses multiple „frames of light“ which dimensions correspond with the height and bright of the entrance to the gallery backspace. Thirteen frames are hanging on the ceiling or standing on the floor, building a imaginary light tunnel. The gallery stairs transform to stage and viewing point in the same time.

During the day the exterior buildings are reflected in the street window, they overlap with the “light frames” inside. During the night, the installation focuses on the tunnel effect, cuts a clear access through the building, connects outer with inner space. The window to the backyard opens the light effect even further into the city.
