Eva Fàbregas takes over the historical hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof with a monumental, site-specific installation. The artist's largest solo exhibition to date expands the boundaries of sculpture, inviting visitors to a sensual, spatial experience. Biomorphous sculpturestransform the museum hall's architecture, which is characterized by industrial iron girders, into an organically grown space.

With this new commission, Fàbregas (b. 1988 in Barcelona, lives and works in London and Barcelona) responds to the passage-like architecture of Hamburger Bahnhof’s main historical hall. The soft and corporeal objects, characteristic of the artist's work, spread out throughout the entire space, from the sides, from the ceiling, and through the metal structures. Slight vibrations and movements emanating from them cannot be clearly identified, but are almost physically percebtible. The mix of sculpture and movement reorients the visitors’ experience of the hall. The borders between technically generated, and the human and non-human worlds become blurred. Visitors find themselves immersed in this organic-technical environment.
