Ondak Measuring The Universe 1 Sm
Performance and installation.
Edition 2 + 1 A.P. Collections: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; MoMA, New York; Tate Modern, London. © Roman Ondak. Courtesy of the artist and Galerie Martin Janda.
A cross between an installation and an event open to everyone, the work begins as an empty white gallery. As visitors enter the exhibition space, they are invited to stand against the wall and have their height marked off and labelled with their name and the date of their visit. Measuring the Universe stems from Roman Ondak’s interest in blurring the boundaries between art and everyday life. The idea for the work came from the common parental practice of measuring their children’s height. The marks of growth indicate time’s passage, and the changing relationship to experience and the world. As the title of the work suggests, it is through our own scale that we measure the universe.
