Nika Erjavec: In/Sight
lighting installation
24th May–19th June 2021


The In/Sight installation thematizes the relationship and conditionality of sensually accessible reality and human perceptual abilities. The artist’s toying with the physical properties of light and vibration reveals how our visual apparatus functions and the limits of our sensory perception. The work is inspired by the phenomenon of inertia of vision, ie. the time the brain needs to process image information. The kinetic-optical phantasm, anchored in a concrete niche on the banks of the Ljubljanica, escapes our perception and keeps on turning into an abstraction or information “glitch”. As a result, when material and light come into contact, segments of elusive reality are revealed.
