DRAWING IN SPACE – RESONANCE
In the installation „Drawing in Space“ Jeongmoon Choi illuminates the darkness of the church tower room in St. Andrew’s Church with a complex geometric arrangement of fluoriscent threads that will evoke a gentle and pleasant sensory confusion in the viewer. As the threads reflect the light in the structures designed by Choi, the room seems to vibrate. The artist conceives a tension between the fragility of the thread structures and the massive structure of the surrounding space. Her installation gives the impression of a virtual, pulsating contemplation of analog and digital positions, structures, movements and different perspectives of perception in space.
TURM ST. ANDREAS
In Romanic times, the centre of the market and craftsmen’s settlement shifted from the humid lowlands between Domburg Castle and St. Michael’s Church to St. Andreas Church. Like the market churches in many other German bishop’s towns, St. Andreas represented in the High Middle Ages the bourgeois self-confidence towards the sovereign power of the bishop (Hochstift), which was represented in the cathedral. Although the construction of the Gothic church began at the end of the 14th century, the tower did not reach its final height until 1883. And only recently it was reopened to the public, made possible by donations from the citizens who donated individual steps. In this way the citizens of Hildesheim made the space in the tower under the belfry high above the town usable again.
