Angélica Teuta
EXHIBITION From 23.05.2013 To 30.06.2013

Upon entering the gallery, the audience will be transported into an outdoor setting, inviting the visitor to walk on and experience a landscape made of pallets and abstracted sound reminiscent of the sea. At the same time the visitor can take a rest to observe a tropical island at sunset rendered on wallpaper and how the gallery constantly changes by means of projections and coloured light.

In her installations, Angélica Teuta combines light projections and simple technical mechanisms with recycled objects and sound to merge them into a hybrid universe. By altering the environment Teuta places the visitor in a world in which the expansion of time and space affects our perception of reality.
