“This exhibition – throughout 6018North’s house – draws from Rem Koolhaas’s The Elements of Architecture exhibition for the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale. The architect presented what he considers the fundamentals of buildings: the floor, wall, ceiling, facade, balcony, corridor, door, toilet, stair, et cetera to analyze the components of architecture. However, he claimed to exclude design and art from the analysis. This exhibition looks at the same elements but through artists’ eyes and presents how artists approach the architectural elements of floor, wall, ceiling, door, toilet, et cetera.
