To hide, to fly away, to be lighter than air, to float, to soar. The installation Landscape of Levitation brings a piece of a world on the border between dream and reality, inhabited by beings that defy gravity. Its first form was created for the exhibition of the Capital City Gallery called Club as Shelter. Now it is being brought outdoors, into closer contact with the elements and the backdrop of the magical nighttime Klementinum.
The artist duo Tereza Bartůňková and Pavla Beranová work with intangible elements such as light, air and helium. The materials they choose are light and changeable – foils and fabrics with varying degrees of transparency. Water, fog and wind also play an important role, bringing a necessary element of unpredictability to the installation.
Jan Burian’s sound design combines everything into one harmonious whole. It follows the unknown language of levitating beings and the landscape as an entity and as such it oscillates between language and landscape. The installation Landscape of Levitation is a celebration of lightness.
