The nexus between architecture and installation art has long been a topic worthy of exploration. Installation transforms space and interacts with the audience; it must be designed, constructed and installed and therefore relies on architectural components.
Since the late eighties the acclaimed conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov have created fantastical spaces that they call ‘total’ installations inviting viewers to immerse themselves in stories about utopian dreams. For Kabakovs installation is largely connected to architecture and they often incorporate architectural elements in their work. What links them the most is space.
The variety of drawings on view present us with their famous installations such as "The Toilet" realised at the IX Kassel Documenta 1992, "The Palace of Projects" permanently installed at the Zeche Zollverein, and "The Red Pavilion", which was exhibited at the 45th Venice Biennale 1993 are included in the exhibition among many other ideas built on paper.
