Olfactory Exhibition Series at Projektraum Enter in Kunstmuseum Thun 

What does scent have to do with art? At first glance, nothing, it seems. But scent has long been a part of art on many levels, and is increasingly so nowadays. From the materials and processes used to produce art to the subject matters of the work itself, scent—whether present physically or only in memory or the imagination—is part of the reality of art. In cooperation with the Scent Culture Institute, Kunstmuseum Thun is presenting a year-long series of four exhibitions at Projektraum Enter examining the sense of smell through the museum’s collection. Through the series, Projektraum Enter will act as an experimental place for olfactory exploration, from the what and how art is made, and how we perceive it, to the artistic evocations of smell, be they in still lives, city scenes, landscapes, abstractions, or the real world.
