Supra Terram


Katrin Sigurdardottir

Supra Terram is a large-scale installation in which a cave-like structure intersects a building on two levels and redefines the architecture of the building with its volume. The experience is an overlay of two places, paradoxically put together into one, complicating the navigation of the exhibition space by changing the volume and shape of the rooms of the pre-existing building. The construction of these panels will not be concealed in any way so that the distinction between the existing and inserted structures is clear. Through this intervention, the preexisting building is called to play a counterpart in the installation as its design is activated in an unexpected way.
