During London Design Festival (LDF) 2015 the V&A has, for the recent years, opened up the museum for various sponsored installations by more or less famous or well known artists. I have earlier showed work by Faye Toogood and now is the time for the "Mise-en-Abyme" by Laetitia de Allegri and Matteo Fogale. There challenge was the Gallery 112 and they chose here to work with the internal bridge between the Medieval and Renaissance galleries in the museum. In collaboration with Johnson Tiles and acrylic supplied by Altuglas they have played with the viewers/visitors sense of perspective and the way of painting during the renaissance period (to draw the viewer into the picture by the slowly changing colour - here represented by the floor tiles). The same goes with the acrylic "walls" that would give you a very different experience depending on directions of walking! Like walking in our out of a grotto!

Walking "in" over the bridge!
