Museum visitors 1:8, 2010 3D body scans of living individuals
K20 Grabbelplatz (Labor), Düsseldorf, Germany
10.07.2010 – 23.01.2011
Launched to coincide with the museum’s reopening and set in the Labor, the new presentation space of the Department of Education, will be an exhibition series featuring contemporary artists who seek to come to terms with the museum context and with the role of the visitor. Exhibitions will choreograph the participatory interplay – even to the
point of role reversal – between beholder, work, and artist.
To kick off the series, Karin Sander transforms the Labor into a production site where the public itself become the
focus of attention. Produced by means of 3D imaging are full-scale plaster models of museum visitors. By selecting gesture, pose and accessories, visitors can shape these representations of their own figures. Using the body scans, which will be on display in the Labor, Sander not only renders the production process.
