Installation design

TENT Gallery

Rotterdam, NL

with Micaela Nardella; 2013

 

We were was asked by the art gallery TENT in Rotterdam to develop the interior design for the event “A Banquet for Wandering Ghosts”.  The one night festival was aimed at exploring the interfaces between Halloween and contemporary art, through a program of performances.

Based on the existing art exhibition, the design intervention for the main scenes explored the concept of a place which does not immediately reveal itself.

The Tunnel of Terror was located in a narrow and tall space and functioning as a screening room. The concept was based on the belief that death is perceived as a universal inducer of horror and fear. The space was covered in plastic foil making a reference to  the one in which murder victims are wrapped in.
