Exhibition, V&A London, until 02 January 2014
These contemporary artists were commissioned by the V&A to create a major site-specific installation in the former Textile Galleries, thereby transforming them into an apartment belonging to a fictional, elderly and disillusioned architect. The domestic setting appears like a set for an unrealised play. A script, written by the artists, is available for visitors as a printed book. The apartment, meanwhile, can be explored through sitting on the sofa and reading the inhabitant’s books and magazines. Also featured are objects from the V&A's various collections juxtaposed with works by the artists and items sourced from antique markets, creating an unexpected encounter for the visitor.
