Anywhen, 2016

Anywhen is a site-specific exhibition that changes throughout the day and that will evolve during the six-month period of the commission. The exhibition is conceived as an automaton which guides the public through a constantly changing play of moving elements, light configurations, and sound environments. The artist states that ‘the exhibition is a construction of situations or sequences in a non-linear narrative’.

The commission responds to the Turbine Hall’s position at the center of the museum, an open space connected to the city itself. The artist combines aspects of chance and control: the sequences of events are triggered by software which is informed by micro-organisms. These react to and activate elements of the commission through a bioreactor visible at the far end of the Turbine Hall.
