The exhibition project The Level of Doubt for the Nitra Gallery is a site-specific project and takes into consideration the nature of the exhibition space. The premises of the Youth Gallery include also a staircase – an unusual exhibition space that turns into a central challenge to appropriate, interpret and evoke the elementary qualities of space.
The motivation and inspiration for the exhibition is to analyze the perception of space, to disclose the meaning of genius loci not only as related to the visual environment but also to its holistic perception as related to physical movement. The architectural space is usually understood in terms of visual syntax but can be also understood as a sequence, the place of presentation of human condition and human encounters. The elementary theme is the phenomenology of architecture and its subjective perception.
“Fragility” focuses on perceptual nuances rather than on the construction principles and comes out of possible physical and spatial instability (shift, delineation, stumbling, trembling, anxiety, visual “stuttering” and other).
