Perceptual Drift (Galaxies in Mind)

Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb. July 6 - August 20, 2017.

The exhibition Perceptual Drift (Galaxies in Mind) by Ivana Franke takes visitors on a journey through various levels of artistic exploration by analysing our visual and spatial perceptual thresholds. Starting with a complete visual relocation in a series of installations in dark spaces, leaning on bodily sensations in intentionally unstable optical conditions, it continues on to a series of objects and prints—models meant to exercise visual comprehension and awareness of invisible structures that comprise the image of the world, revealed through quasy-hallucinatory visual experiences in the observers minds. After the initiation path that starts as a complete dizziness, we move on to rational constructs and spatial speculations, and ultimately towards a conscious experience of vast unknown areas permeating our minds and the phenomenal reality.
