It happens here and now, and yet it doesn’t happen. Voices so close, we can almost feel the breath. There is nothing to see, yet the story is concrete, we supply the emotions, the sounds, the pictures. We provide ourselves. The Finnish artist Hans Rosenström turns room 113 into a place of supposedly direct, immediate encounter, his installation forge an intimate link to the visitors who are alone with themselves, yet still actors, without having to move. For a few minutes, we are immersed in a world of sound, a space that is here and now and yet somewhere else, if at all.
