Net Linz
OK Center for Contemporary Art / 27.06. – 19.10.2014 Linz, Austria

Net Linz is an inhabitable/climable social sculpture serving as an experimental staircase in the exhibition space. The structure of vertical, interconnected nets was developed for a specific corridor space within the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz. The nets are suspended from the ceiling and stretched with the weight of sand bags attached to their base. Although the system from previous Net installations remained the same, the vertical orientation results in a specific, canyon-like appearance and different sensation while visiting the structure. Instead of balancing over the elastic floor of horizontal nets, in "moved spaces" in Linz, the visitors gently swing as they climb along the steep path.
