Mana Contemporary mounts the premier of a new work by Austrian-born, New York-based, Kurt Hentschläger. "SUB" is an immersive environment that uses dramatic perceptual shifts to invoke direct audience engagement.
The installation’s gestalt approach gives an elevated sense of drama, bringing visitors into its expansive void. Sound provides both an accompaniment to these moments of light, and a constant backdrop to the setting.
Visitors may enter at any time and stay as long as they desire, "SUB" has no beginning or end. The visual and sonic impressions vary substantially, creating a unique experience for each participant.
As part of the installation’s premier, a special live performance with artist Richard Garet will take place on Saturday, August 3.
