Site-specific installation. Plaster board, metal construction
In this work, I responded to the context of specific character of an architecture and institutional context of Slovak National Gallery. Profile of steps in the gallery were made simultaneously on both sides of the staircase, on the step side and those visible underneath. I ordered to produce the same profile of the steps as those from the underneath the staircase and install these on the smooth vertical wall opposite the entrance to the gallery. This opens the new (virtual) possibility for visitors how to perceive the art (in the gallery) – "upside down". This possibility links to the layman viewers‘ opinion declaring not understanding the art because it is "upside down".
