This work located in the ex-Alumix factory is almost invisible. It forms a part of the peripheral vision of exhibition visitors. In Liminal Level , a monofilament structure is employed as a surface to reflect light. Reflections appear and disappear as observers move around. The structure is in itself invisible: moments of visibility trace and indicate its presence while its own shape remains elusive.
Ivana Franke often works with transparent materials and light to create situations that convey a sense of the ephemeral. Her installations probe the relations between appearance and materiality, questioning our sense of spatial dimensions. By introducing unstable forms at the margins of perception, they manage to open up moments of inaccuracy in human perception.
