Loris Gréaud – Cellar Door

Loris Gréaud - Cellar Door

Loris Gréaud has produced a prodigious installation that is currently on view at the ICA in London. “Cellar Door” is a hybrid exhibition encompassing architecture, sculpture and opera. Periodically, black champagne is served by identical triplets. Museum visitors are also invited to enjoy candy available in a vending machine in the ICA’s bar. The candy has no flavor, Gréaud encourages the audience to project their own sensibilities onto the sweets. In fact, this is how Loris Gréaud would prefer the entire exhibit to be perceived. This piece will continue to grow and reappear in new forms over time.
