Kerstin Ergenzinger brings together two installations that confront our tangible environment and the impermanence of bodies in space. Reacting to imperceptible movements of air generated by visitors or by the installation itself, Whiskers in Space is composed of feather-like sensible structures that quiver in a seemingly random way. In the next room, Rotes Rauschen (Red noise) translates the inaudible low frequencies constantly emitted by the earth into the fluttering of an overarching pendulum whose awareness is also at times informed by the shifting of mass through space. Ergenzinger poetically evokes an anxiety common to machines and humans over the plausible loss of control on their behaviour. She thus pursues her research into our equivocal relation to the inscrutability of nature.
