Brook Andrew’s The Cell is a large-scale installation, featuring a 12.5m x 6m inflatable rectangle that requires the viewer to wear a specially designed costume, before crawling via a tunnel into a striped cell.
In the artist’s words, “The original idea for The Cell is an extension of my wall pattern installations, where one is immersed in the pattern and experience. You are immediately transformed once you don a costume and enter The Cell."
There is really only one option here, climb inside and experience it for yourself…
About the artist: Andrew’s work examines Western history, specifically relating to colonialism, and places Australia at the centre of a global inquisition, spanning across video, sculpture, photography and immersive installations.
