Giant Art Labyrinth

Schneider6

“The Peristal Singum” is a large-scale installation by German artist, Tim Henrik Schneider. The interactive project spans ten different chambers that visitors must walk, climb, and crouch through. Of course, the physical challenges of navigating the space are entirely intentional.

Mimicking the human digestive system, “Peristal Singum” is a response to how quickly (and dismissively) art tends to be consumed. According to Schneider, “the physical experience of art is the only way people will start to self-reflect.” The labyrinthine layout is meant to force people to take their time and really engage with the art that surrounds them.

The installation opens at the Aus Berlin Festival in Tilburg on November 28th. See below for images from the original Berlin show.
