Boiseries – Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 10/11/2010 – 6/6/2011

Installation depicting and interpreting an 18th century french room,  commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The viewer encounters the raw exterior of an enclosed polyhedral chamber. Trough surveillance mirrors, the interior of the room is visible, complete with replica furniture based on the Hôtel de Crillon period room in the Museum’s Wrightsman Galleries. Standing behind the mirrors the viewer observes infinite refelctions of the opposing mirrors, yet always void of the viewers figure, hidden behind the one-way glass.
