For his first solo exhibition outside of North America, Chicago-based Canadian architect Jimenez Lai's Bureau Spectacular will transform the AF's Project Space with an inhabitable installation; creating a modular home of 'super-furniture'.
Riffing on notions of privacy and publicity, and the contemporary performance of living in public, the installation merges the exhibitionism of Hugh Hefner with the live-art of Joseph Beuys. Jimenez himself will call the installation home over the London Festival of Architecture period, before a series of invited guests stake up residence in exchange for hosting public events, over the course of the exhibition.
