In the Belvedere Winterpalais contemporary interventions are staged in the opulent state rooms of the Baroque palace. With the invasion of this silent conquest, a physically palpable intervention challenges the resplendent setting and gives rise to a vital and accessible architecture. The installation is positioned in the centre of the room. Its haptic properties invite visitors to interact playfully with one another and with the space. The installation object is filled with air and water and projects the touches onto an interactive ceiling fresco formed of light reflections. Enhanced by a fragrance developed for the installation by Yogesh Kumar, a moment of mystery and seduction intensifies the light scenario.
