Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex

Peepers – art installation by An installation by Maisie Broadhead ** 25 Oct 2014 – 1 Mar 2015 ** Royal Pavilion, Brighton

 

Pavilion Contemporary returns to the Royal Pavilion this autumn, with a stunning new installation in the Music Room by artist Maisie Broadhead.

Visitors are invited to experience the palace in a new way, as the Music Room becomes a decadent doll’s house, dwarfed by giant figures peering curiously in through the windows.

The installation is inspired by the scrutiny George IV experienced from a society which became obsessed, fascinated, intrigued, even disgusted by his life in the extravagant Royal Pavilion and detached from the reality of the outside world. The work plays with our voyeuristic fascination with peering in at other people’s lives and homes – especially those of celebrities and royals.

Maisie Broadhead graduated from Brighton University and the Royal College of Art, originally working with jewellery. She works increasingly with photography and film, creating atmospheric contemporary narratives inspired by historical reference points, paintings and photographs.
