WUN 003 Wunderstadt SLA 2005/06
Aedes Gallery Berlin
The term Wunderstadt describes an architectural vision of our physical environment and is related to the Renaissance forerunner of the museum, the Wunderkammer. In the Wunderkammer rare items were displayed for both admiration and amazement. There was no obvious hierarchical organization of the objects — they appeared in a spatial composition that drew attention to the particular experience. At Aedes Gallery the same logic is interpreted through a paraphrase of SLA own studio with its many material samples; The visitors of the exhibition are invited to a sensuous perception of urban everyday life — as if it was a Wunderkammer.
