Psycho Buildings at Hayward Gallery

Ten artists from around the world have been given 'carte blanche' to inhabit and transform the spaces of the Hayward indoors and outdoors this summer.

Rachel Whiteread's 'Village' will be shown in Britain for the first time, an eery installation of 250 dolls houses collected by the artist over the past 20 years, which is a radical departure from her previous work; Mike Nelson will transform an entire gallery into a scene of haunting devastation, as if an unseen beast had freed himself from the space by violently clawing through the walls; Tomas Saraceno (Argentina) will create a giant iridescent observatory on a sculpture terrace; Do-Ho Suh (Korea) will recreate a 1:5 scale replica of his childhood crashing into a New England apartment building; Los Carpinteros (Cuba) will construct an exploding room; Tobias Putrih (Slovenia) will install a 30-seat cinema showing a programme of films about artists and architecture.

Other artists featured are: Atelier Bow-Wow (Tokyo), Michael Beutler (Germany), artists' collective Gelitin (Austria) and Ernesto Neto (Brazil).

Psycho Buildings will stay open from 10am until 10pm for the final six days, from Wednesday 20 August to Monday 25 August.
