Hosted by Materials And Applications, an organisation which hosts biannual rotating installlations in a street front located in Los Angeles, California.
La cage aux folles is acting like a twisted variation of a cage, the exhibit is supposed to act as venure for three performances through the month of May otherwise being open for public to circulate and engage in.
The installation contains high metaphorical value as it’s title can allude to both a popular french play and the complex geometry of the exhibit which may be also labeled as crazy.
The installation is composed of steel pipes bent and arranged radially to achieve curvilinearity. The surfaces are created in contnuity and explore how small scale elements can be combined using pattern and geometry to create stable and sturdy compositions. Patrons must step with caution as not all areas are easily navigable and some are exclusively for children.
