1147m3 Westergasfabriek by Lea-Nina Fischer is an installation work which questions our perception of space and time.What is the scent of the Westergasfabriek? In cooperation with the perfumer, Andreas Wilhelm, Fischer creates an abstract scent which brings forward different facets of the space of the Westergasfabriek.  

Artistic Statement

How do we perceive our surroundings? How do we perceive space and time? Through multi-sensory installation work I ask my audience to become participants reflecting upon their interpretation of the subject of space. Working with scent in my recent work, I am interested in the often-overlooked impact that odours have on perception, specifically through the memory and associations they trigger within the individual. My work is site-specific.
