The ceiling and the floor fell in love, but only the wall knew.*

Is this the outcome of them being close? Does this even seem plausible to you?
Imagine a narrative as a straight line that goes astray. Imagine it becoming a haunted space, a cluster of possibilities that constantly re-institutes itself.
Would you still be able to trace the edges? If narratives are sense-making tools, what’s the relationship between plausibility and causality? How do you navigate through a story without closure … where events become loose ends dangling next to each other, waiting for the accidental touch.

In a Room is an exhibition that explores some of those questions and within the intimate setting of artist Claudia Heinzler’s private apartment.
