Giant Peep-Show Box: Architecture Event in London, UK – by Catja de Haas

London, England, UK

Through The Plug Hole: Hidden Landscape

Venue: TESTBED 1, 33 Parkgate Road, London, SW11 4NP

Dates: 15 – 18 Oct 2014

Between October 15 and 18, Catja de Haas will exhibit a gigantic peep-show box in the TESTBED1 space. The peepshow traditionally offered its audiences views to an idealized dream world. In the TESTBED installation however, the peepshow enclosure, a pristine white kitchen island, represents the ideal; its gloss and whiteness masking the waste and chaos that it often takes to achieve surface perfection. The landscape that is looked at through the peeping holes is a surreal mix of chaos, loneliness and waste that undermines as well as questions the perfection of its enclosure.
