A major contemporary exhibition, MAGNETISM has taken over seven rooms of the old Snia/Saehan factory where the extraordinary scale of the space allows for the exhibition of what could be called “extreme objects”; or large-scale works that populate the immense rooms of the factory. These dynamic sculptural works have a transformative effect on the former industrial spaces – including the huge videotape ‘pancake’ stores and welder’s workshop – through inflatables, lighting, motors, draping and film projection.
