The concept ‘witching hour’ relates traditionally to a night-time moment when supernatural forces are afoot and inexplicable things happen. In the exhibition this magical moment, usually situated in the hour between 3am and 4am, is stretched into a time and a place, a platform which carries a potential for transformation and change. What is presented is an occasion, a scene, and a setting, where things may begin to brew.
Individual pieces link to each other, and form together a bigger entity. With small gestures, the pieces encourage the visitor to approach them. In addition, a scent – either an uplifting or a relaxing one – is present daily in the space. It encourages the viewer to pay attention to the knowledge our bodies provide to us, and to attune to the atmosphere of the exhibition space.
