Within the art world, what is called an installation is something that appears within the bounds of the relevant room — often a space rectangular in shape and painted white. The work itself is everything encompassed by the room or the intended surface. This white cube has been the standard of art exhibits since the early days of modernism. Despite frequent challenges to its normativity, everything still happens within that room. In Saltu, an architectural, fictive room is created by a black steel construction. Using 50 meters of rope, the same edifice functions structurally to suspend the sofa and thereby the visitor. The visitor’s experience is reminiscent of being inside a spider web installation by Tomás Saraceno.
