can i interest you in an amazing new experience?

Lidl vs. Netto was the theme of a group show in the bleak suburb of Marzahn on the outskirts of Berlin. This installation was made specially for the exhibition, which was held in an old showroom, now converted to a studio/gallery under the name of Akademie der Wissenschaft. The piece comprises a found fold-out carpet sample book displaying scores of near-identical designs, a very bright strip light, and a soundtrack (via headphones) of subtly circular muzak accompanying insistent unending questions from adverts (such as ‘what is the ugliest part of your body?’). 

Made with Louie O’Grady as louie+jesse in Berlin, August, 2010.
