The silent sound of dripping,sub rosa. A remnant limb of a worm-holed cherry tree. An entrance, a foyer of iridescent walls, leading us back and forth in time. A pool of growing bodies – glimmering in microscales – acting as reminders of times that have been, or are yet to come.

In the (nonmetaphoric) use of the term ‘participation’ Monika Gabriela Dorniak introduced a site-specific arrangement, that responded to the architectural memory of In the Closet. The solo exhibition presents old and new works of Dorniak’s series Aesthetics of Knowledge (2019-ongoing). The score Your Body is a Water Vessel (2021/2022), for which Dorniak collaborated with sound artist Monty Callaghan, accomponied the installation.
