The concept of Superflex One Two Three Swing!

The piece of installation artwork is huge, it covers most of the hallway area close to the entrance. As the video is shown, there is an eye-catching pendulum suspended about 20 meters from the ceiling and a cable is attached. It is swinging near the entrance and the visitors were entering under it. There are rails in orange and grey colors and attached with some chains linking to choices of one, two and three-seated swings for visitors to sit and enjoy the swinging session.

I believe that the artists wanted to present liberation by adding a playful element and as a collective experience to engage with visitors and to challenge the use of space in an exhibition center or gallery.

Thank you for reading.
