Negative Space Residency / De School / 2019
Words by Angelina Nikolayeva
Max Neuhaus once said: “Our perception of space depends as much on what we hear as on what we see,” coining the term “sound installation.” Our senses feed our perceptions, and our perceptions feed our senses, defining the way we experience surroundings. Already a familiar face to De School (night club in Amsterdam), Boris Acket invited a group of befriended artists to take over De Aula as part of an artist in residency program to explore this phenomenon. Equipped with a custom-made modular system created together with Sjors Varkevisser, they explored our perception of space by altering their set up each week.
