The exhibition within the IMPAKT Festival 2002 is located in the festival center, a vacant building in the Hamburgerstraat in the heart of Utrecht.
Hundreds of years ago the building was an abbey and until recently, the Utrecht cantonal court held seat here. This location breathes history and the past is still tangible here.
The exhibition Encounters is a collection of evocative installations that all deal with the mental aspect of the space. The spectator is given the opportunity to follow the artist’s exploration of the relation between the physical and concrete side of the space and the emotional and perceptible aspects of the space. The ‘site’ is developed into a carrier of human emotions and a container of the non-tangible.
