Spatialization / Dis~Orientations
In deciding to study the exhibition Erre, variations labyrinthiques at Centre Pompidou-Metz, the space brain Laboratory intends to extend its researches about a corporal – both tactile and motor – relation between the viewer and the artwork. The works presented for the exhibition have in common to destabilize and to confuse the viewer, in order to release him from a simple, passive experience and to make him an actor of the artwork he is facing.
