trace room: atelier chan chan

Thursday 23 August 2012

Hi, it's me again [Jenna], filling in for Ella + bringing you another beautiful project this week - Trace Room by Atelier Chan Chan. 

Atelier Chan Chan is a London based practice, with a body of work which bounces between the disciplines of both art and architecture, and was founded by Cambridge Scholar and AA scholarship graduate Zoe Chan in 2010. [If you have never seen a copy of the yearly AA Projects Review and are at all architecturally inclined - then I recommend it - the work is incredible].

This installation is located within the vertical double height space of Gallery 25 - including the staircase, at the Victoria and Albert Museum who commissioned the piece of work as part of Unbuilt De/ constructing architecture. Within various articles about this piece of work, there is much discussion on the way in which this installation reinterprets how people interact with the built environment; particularly the vertical and horizontal surfaces that define habitable spaces.

Other articles go on to highlight the way in which the installation blurs, bends, erases and explodes the traditional thresholds of the room - creating new boundaries. 
Sometimes the most successful spatial experiments are the simplest.
