LIVERPOOL - invited
IF [untitled] architects collaborated with Artist Goshka Macuga to realize a commission in the afoundation gallery in Liverpool as part of the Liverpool Biennale 2006. Macuga's all encompassing environment installation is taking inspiration from the set designs from the film The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, directed in 1919 by Robert Wiene. The ambitious installation utilises the dynamic architecture of the Furnace in order to create elevated walkways, a complex of corridors filled with display cabinets, rotating platforms, hidden rooms and anti-chambers, all of which combine to an abstracted and distorted landscape. Within this complex and intriguing structure a series of theatrical tableaux, performances and exhibitions of artworks, objects and curiosities unfold.
