“Point of Fact,” a site-specific work by Icelandic artist Darri Lorenzen (b. 1978), transforms the Krome Gallery into both a real and virtual protagonist by engaging in subtle interventions into the gallery’s architecture and through the use of a 3D computer simulation.
At the center of the (real) space is an antique wooden display case from the former Karl Marx bookstore adjacent to the gallery. This object – originally intended for displaying items – becomes both the projection screen for an absent art object and an animated actor within the computer simulation.
Additional actors are added as more people visit the exhibition, making the viewer an integral part of Lorenzen’s interplay of shifting and overlapping perceptions of space, time, and body.
