Each space/building has interaction with its contemporary lifestyle. Throughout the time space might lose interaction with its users. In order to enlarge its lifespan new ways of interaction should be found.
Contemporary art can be the key for the reuse of space and the extension of its lifespan. With the reuse of
architectural space, we don’t contribute only to continuation of its lifespan, but, also, in the domain of circular economics.
The study tries to explore what happens with architectural space when new pieces of art are introduced
in it, making them reusable and attractive again, meanwhile contributing to circular economics. The space
which interacts with the artwork cannot survive after the migration of artwork. However, non-contextual
artworks are not designed within the space and they can survive in a museum. An artwork can become a recognizable feature of a space, without which the space may disengage its value or vice versa. Through case studies of works done by the artist Per Kristian Nygård and the architect Carlo Scarpa, we see balance between new and old (revealing the history of a building) and the interaction of space and artworks contributing to the circular economy of a building.
Contemporary art expands its circle by imposing a more open and wider approach. The more ambitious art projects succeed in getting out of the conventional frame and working interactively with individuals from subcultures in open public spaces unusual for creating and presenting a work of art. There are no longer works that have been completed, they use diverse forms of presentation, have more than one appearance and are networked in the public sphere of cultural exchanges. Interaction with space is crucial for contemporary artwork, which cannot be imaged without the architecture.
