The entrance of the “Hyperespace” (sic) installations in the Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen in Switzerland

The Chapuisat brothers, swiss artist duo, produce whimsical installations that challenge our perception of an art-space, using an architectural vocabulary of secret passages and labyrinths. Reflecting on the qualities of the gallery space as a mere assemblage of white walls to hang artworks on, the Chapuisats create a sensational world of exploration behind those very walls, leaving just a crack opening for you to enter.
