In her latest project, artist Ana Likar expands on the state and the position of a body in weightless space. On the neutrality that occurs there. She views floating as an endless fall, with no rough contact with the ground to end the suspension. The titular 9.7639, at first glance seeming as a code, is the deviation from the constant denoting gravitational acceleration, the same for any body on Earth’s surface. The minimal deviation thereby also represents the closest approximation to floating on Earth.
Ana Likar (1996) is a student at the Department for Site-Specific Art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. She works in intermedia, holding exhibitions sporadically and primarily in Austria (New Jörg, Mauve, Fluc, as part of the Shifting Sites: Territories and Space symposium, occasionally also organised by herself – repetition is a form of change), once in Moscow with support of the Austrian Cultural Forum, once in Armenia at the Gallery of Mariam and Eranuhi Aslamazyan Sisters, and also in Ljubljana in 2020 (Gallery 7:069 at Kino Šiška). In between, she thinks a lot about alternative temporalities, (im)possible futures, and the subversive in art. She is a recipient of a scholarship by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
