In collaboration with the institution of KSEVT and Zlati Grič local winery, we have looked at KSEVT as a possible venue for a site-specific wine tasting experience. After a systematic research about the the social aspects of drinking on eart and in outer space, we have looked closely into the physical as well as programatic qualities of KSEVT with the aim of picking the correct space for such an activity. Ultimately, the sloped exhibition tunnel of KSEVT was chosen as a space, which challenges your daily relationship to gravitiy. The project manifested itself as a reinterpretation of the wine glass, designing a site-specific wearable suit, which, through a systematically attached system of tubes, challenges you to use your body movement as a way of drinking your wine. As a result, the wine tasting experience at KSEVT becomes a performance.
