In honour of it being October 31st we thought we would share with you a haunting art installation called ‘Haunted House’ designed by the Torafu Architects. The installation is based in Tokyo’s Museum for Contemporary Art as part of an exhibition for children entitled ‘Ghosts, Underpants & Stars’ displaying portraits that eerily watch you, their heads turn and that you can become apart of. The installation is about the change of perspectives and pushing the norms of society….. ‘the normal, staid rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’, will be relaxed and will provide a place where children are free to touch and have fun. Based around three keywords that symbolize children: ‘Ghosts’ (imagination), ‘Underpants’ (children’s growth) and ‘Stars’ (wishes), the exhibition will consist not only of works that are just to be appreciated for what they are, but will also include participation works or programs.’ Tell us what you think?
