Kino Šiška, Ljubljana
20 – 31 October 2020
The piece Intruder reflects Anže Sever’s many years of researching haptic perception of space and is a substantive and technical advancement of his previous projects. In the new spatial intervention, co-authors Simon Penšek and Anže Sever tackle primarily the relations between architecture, space and the body of a visitor; how, in certain conditions, architecture can directly change the everyday perception of one’s own body.
